COVID-19 Student, Staff Isolation & Quarantine Data

Staff and students isolated and/or quarantined due to COVID-19

The information in the Student, Staff and Isolation and Quarantine Report is provided by individual schools or school districts related to reported staff or students isolated or quarantined due to COVID-19. The numbers reported reflect staff and students who have been unable to work or attend in-person classes due to being isolated or quarantined for COVID-19.

The information presented in this report does not mean that staff or students contracted the virus at school. Unlike a nursing home where residents live at the facility, staff and students come and go from school, are active in their community and may come into contact with COVID-19 outside of a school setting.

This report includes kindergarten through 12th grade students in private and public schools. Only those people who physically work or attend school are included in the counts. Sports coaches, tutors, part-time employees, kitchen staff, custodial and maintenance workers and other school employees who are physically present at schools will be included in these reports in the staff category.

Some schools or districts may choose to self-announce cases before they are reflected in DHEC’s Wednesday report.

Information presented reflects data reported the previous week (Monday-Friday) and will be updated weekly, on Wednesdays. DHEC sends the new quarantine and isolation survey to schools at 7 a.m. on Fridays, and schools need to report that information back to DHEC by noon on Tuesdays in order for their counts to be included into the report. Questions related to information provided by the schools should be directed to the schools.
