ACA COVID Dashboard
Our ACA COVID Dashboard lists current active confirmed COVID-19 cases.
The purpose of this data is to provide ACA staff and families with a transparent summary of positive confirmed cases resulting in exclusion from school activities. 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 campus 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.
Our dasboard website is updated by the end of the day each Friday. The total number reflects all active AND confirmed COVID cases that are still in effect for the next school day for all students or staff. The cases reflect what is active for the next school day so that parents have the most relevant information available. As positive cases complete the 10-day isolation period, they are removed from the count, and cases that are in their last day of isolation on the date of the update are not included, since they would no longer be active the next school day.
