The Virginia Department of Health (VDH Pandemic) Metrics dashboard is now available online.  This includes Daily Region Metrics and Weekly Transmission Extent.  

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) explains Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making. FCPS adheres to VDH and CDC health guidance.

FCPS COVID-19 Data Reporting

FCPS is sharing weekly COVID-19 cases that have been self-reported to us. Data is updated weekly, each Friday by 1pm. Any cases occurring after that time are reported for the following week.

This data should be interpreted with caution as it only reflects cases that have been shared with FCPS through self-reporting and may not be aligned to future epidemiological investigations. This data is being shared from a division level, as opposed to school or work site, so that it does not jeopardize sharing personally identifiable, confidential health information involving FCPS students and staff.

Cases reports indicate the total number of COVID-19 cases self-reported to principals/administrators/program managers. Reports were shared with the FCHD to initiate contact tracing.
