NCPS COVID-19 Dashboard
Nelson County Public Schools’ COVID-19 dashboard is part of our ongoing efforts to help keep our families, staff, and community informed about health concerns and related decisions connected to our schools.
As we continue to do everything reasonably possible to assist in these efforts, we will publish the most up-to-date information on confirmed COVID-19 cases on this page as cases occur. Additionally, each school will continue to notify their school community about all positive cases affecting their building within 24 hours of a report of a confirmed positive test result.
These steps are above and beyond what our Health Plan, which was developed in partnership with state and local health experts, requires. This plan calls for notifications to be provided only to those individuals who have been identified as a “close contact” through contact tracing.
However, Nelson County Public Schools believes that sharing this additional information will assist our community in better understanding the impact of COVID-19 throughout the school division.
Due to privacy concerns, we are prohibited from identifying specific individuals or disclosing medical information about our staff or students.
The following information represents all confirmed positive COVID-19 cases affecting our buildings for the 2021-2022 school year. We will publish the most up-to-date information on confirmed COVID-19 cases as they occur.
When there is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, NCPS immediately contacts the Blue Ridge Health District as we work together to conduct contact tracing and identify any other employees and/or students who may have been exposed. Affected individuals must quarantine for two weeks from the time of their last exposure to the person who tested positive for COVID-19. Affected students, in accordance with official health guidance, the transition to remote learning during this time to help prevent the further spread of COVID-19. Additionally, our custodial staff is deployed to conduct enhanced cleaning to sanitize the affected area(s).
We continue to ask that our families complete a daily health screening each morning by checking their student’s temperature and looking for any other signs of illness.
Children and employees showing any signs of illness are required to stay home until they are symptom-free.
In accordance with our Health Plan, facial coverings are also required in school buildings and on buses. Parents are encouraged to have students pack a spare mask and extra hand sanitizer, if possible.
