COVID-19 Cases

Weekly Report on COVID-19 Cases in the Douglas County School System

As schools begin in-person instruction, we have processes in place to deal with COVID-19 cases that will inevitably occur among our students and staff. Our goal is to mitigate the spread in our buildings through health and safety protocols and through a process of contact tracing.

On September 4, 2020, the Douglas County School System began reporting new cases of COVID-19 in school system buildings every Friday afternoon. Cases are reported by school and do not differentiate between students and staff. Case counts indicate new cases for that week (Friday at noon to the following Friday at noon) and are not cumulative.

Please keep in mind that we will protect the privacy of our staff and students. We will not provide names or any information that could identify a person who has tested positive.

When there is a case in a school, we will not send notification to all parents. Only those students identified as direct and indirect contacts are notified in one of two ways:
  • If the student is in school, a letter will be given to the student to take home. Please ask your child each day if he or she has a letter to share with you.
  • If the student is not in school, the letter will be emailed to the parent through our automated messaging system. Please ensure that your email address is correct in Infinite Campus.
For additional information on our contact tracing and notification process, please see the letter sent to parents on August 24, 2020.

For a daily status report of COVID-19 in Douglas County and in counties throughout the state, please go to the Georgia Department of Public Health website.

If you have questions regarding our reporting process, please reach out to the principal at your child's school or submit a question here.
