COVID-19 Health Metrics

FCPS will be sharing daily updates regarding COVID-19 cases

VDH Outbreak Dashboard

The K-12 Schools Reporting Outbreaks of COVID-19 publishes data related to the outbreak of COVID-19 in public and private K-12 schools in the Commonwealth. The outbreak data lists those schools and localities in which an outbreak has occurred among students or staff. An outbreak is defined in this dashboard as “the identification of two or more laboratory-confirmed cases of illness that are epidemiologically linked by person, place, and time.” The outbreak data also notes the status of the outbreak, and whether it is in progress, pending closure, or closed. Outbreak-associated case counts and deaths will be suppressed if there are fewer than 5 cases or between 0 and 5 deaths to protect anonymity. Additional information about outbreaks in Virginia is available

Health Metrics: Current Decision-Making Process for In-Person Instruction

For a group to BEGIN in-person instruction: 

  • The established thresholds for the group must be met for BOTH the number of cases per 100,000 persons and the percent positivity for seven (7) consecutive calendar days.

For a group to REMAIN in in-person instruction:

  • The number of cases per 100,000 persons or the percent positivity may not exceed the established threshold for the group for seven (7) consecutive calendar days.

Groups will transition back to DISTANCE LEARNING if:

  • The number of cases per 100,000 persons or the percent positivity exceeds the established threshold for the group for seven (7) consecutive calendar days.
