COVID TRACKER Week Ending 9/17/21

From the desk of Dr. Jesse Wallace:


Dear Family members, Staff, Stakeholders, and Students,


In an effort to provide transparent, accurate, and timely information in regard to the infections of COVID-19 within the Laurel Highlands School District; below is building information that quantifies the number of COVID-19 cases and the number of personnel and students who are either quarantining due to DOH and/or medical provider recommendations or who are COVID-19 positive and are following the DOH guidance in regard to quarantining week ending 9/17/21. Please keep in mind that often staff and students who are COVID-19 positive have self-quarantined prior to diagnosis; therefore, the contagious timeline does not affect others or our schools. However, if this is not the case, the DOH and/or medical provider will connect with us to determine close contacts. Subsequently, we will be following all DOH/PDE guidance in regard to mitigation protocols.


Week ending 9/17/21:
