POWAY UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT COVID-19 DASHBOARD

All confirmed positive COVID-19 incidents related to Poway Unified school sites and offices will be posted to this page. For the purposes of this dashboard, PUSD is distinguishing between school-based cases and community-based cases, with two separate columns for every month in the table below:

  • "S.B." School-Based cases: 
​a. school-based cases will potentially impact individuals' health and wellness at our school or office because there may be site-related exposure OR a positive case was on campus during an infectious period
b. a school-based case MAY cause classroom closure or other precautionary measures
c. we will follow the San Diego County Office of Eduction Decision Tree and Guidelines around isolating and notifying close contacts, as needed
 
  • Known "C.B." Community-Based cases:
a. community-based cases DO NOT impact individuals' health and wellness at our school or office because no one at the site was in close contact with the positive individual during the infectious period. Per the CDC definition, this means no one at the site was within 6 feet of the infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient was isolated
b. this dashboard will include all known community-based cases related to PUSD; this dashboard may not reflect all community-based cases involving our staff and students because PUSD relies on notification from public health or self-reporting from staff or families
c. we will follow the San Diego County Office of Education Decision Tree and Guidelines around isolating the positive case, as needed
 

Most Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How often is the Dashboard updated?
Answer: The Dashboard is updated at least every 5-7 days and when we are notified of confirmed cases by the public health department.

Question: I received a notification from my school about a case. Why isn't it on the dashboard yet?
Answer: PUSD does not wait to notify close contacts upon initial report of a positive case. However, we do wait for official confirmation from the public health department before listing the case on this dashboard. This could result in a delay of cases appearing on this dashboard or a discrepancy between the number of notifications received and actual number of confirmed cases (when the case is not confirmed positive by public health). 

Question: Who receives notification if there is a positive case?
Answer: Three different types of notifications go out: one to close contacts with any relevant quarantine or testing requirements or recommendations, one to the classroom or cohort, and one to the larger school community.  

Question: I am a close contact to a positive case or I am exhibiting COVID symptoms. Where can PUSD students or staff go to get tested?
