• WTHS COVID-19 Positive Cases and Close Contacts

    School notifications regarding positive COVID-19 cases are only sent home on incidents in which someone was on a WTHS school campus and/or on school buses while contagious. In these circumstances, potential close contact may occur and the communication helps provide information regarding the contact-tracing process. These individuals are included in the dashboard instances related to positive COVID-19 cases.

    Other cases occur in which individuals are positive and may have been exposed to COVID-19 outside of WTHS and activities, but were not actually on campus or buses while contagious. These individuals are still required to quarantine and are included in the dashboard instances related to positive COVID-19 cases, but notifications are not sent home as contact-tracing from time at WTHS does not occur.

    The dashboard data regarding individuals who are quarantined include individuals who are positive for COVID-19, and also those who have been determined to be in close contact with someone who is or was positive for COVID-19.  Close contact cases include both instances of close contact for time and activity at WTHS, as well as those who have been directed to quarantine for close contact instances outside of WTHS.
