COVID-19 Data

 Today the Department of Public Health released new data showing the impact of COVID-19 in Saint Louis County schools. The information below is derived from reports from and discussions with individual schools and school districts. It includes K-12 schools, both public and private, that reported to DPH a positive case and/or a contact among staff or students from 8/1/2020 through 8/31/2020. 

  • Thirty-nine students tested positive for COVID-19. Among these: 
    • At least 23 resulted in school-related exposures to staff, students, or both. These exposures resulted in over 325 students and staff members being placed on quarantine.
    • The remaining students tested positive for COVID-19, but without any school-related exposure or transmission to staff or students.
    • The majority of cases were among middle and high school students.
  • Thirty-four staff members tested positive for COVID-19. Among these: 
    • At least 14 resulted in school-related exposures to staff, students, or both. These exposures resulted in more than 120 students and staff members being placed in quarantine.
    • The remaining staff members tested positive for COVID-19, but without any school-related exposure or transmission to staff or students.
  • More than 200 students and staff were required to quarantine after exposure to positive cases that were not school-related. The majority of these missed in-school instruction, activities, or work due to their quarantine.
  • At this time, we are still looking into how many secondary cases resulted from school-related transmission.
