TUHSD COVID-19 Dashboard
Updated: October 27, 2020, at 2:47 PM | See below for most current dashboard numbers and dates
The purpose of this dashboard is to provide our Tempe Union High School District families and staff with a transparent summary of COVID-19 cases by school. An active case indicates that a student or staff member participating in on-campus activities has tested positive for an active COVID-19 infection.
Individuals who test positive are excluded from participation in any in-person/on-campus activity until the registered nurse verifies that the individual meets the return criteria set by state and local health authorities. Once the individual is cleared to return, they are no longer considered an active case and their case is removed from the dashboard count.
When a positive case is reported to any TUHSD school, it must first be reported to the Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH). After Maricopa County has investigated and confirmed the positive case the school will communicate in the following ways:
- As part of the contact tracing process, the school will notify every person that has been identified as having “close contact” with the positive individual. Close contact is defined as “being within six feet for a continual ten to fifteen-minute duration.” Any student or staff member deemed to have been in close contact with the positive individual is required to stay home for 14 days from exposure date. ONLY students determined to have had close contact will need to be quarantined.
- If the positive person is a student or teacher, all students in the appropriate class(es) will be notified with a standard TUHSD COVID-19 notification letter.
- After all persons who have been in close contact have been notified, and the notification letter has been sent, the case will be reported on the dashboard below.
- The dashboard will be updated as information becomes available, including but not limited to, daily.
Please note that TUHSD is following MCDPH guidelines. It is not current practice to notify the entire school of a positive case. All communication procedures outlined above follow HIPAA guidelines and protect the privacy rights of students and staff.
