COVID-19 Reporting Instructions for Families

If your child or anyone in your child’s household is suspected of having COVID-19, is awaiting test results, or tests positive for COVID-19, please keep your child at home and notify the school office.

About this Dashboard

The San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) is committed to providing accurate, timely and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff.

This dashboard provides daily updates on the total number of active confirmed COVID-19 cases identified among staff and students participating in in-person instruction and activities on SBCUSD campuses. All active cases are isolated while monitoring symptoms and awaiting PCR test results and therefore do not pose any ongoing threat of spread to others attending schools.

The dashboard data may not match the number of notifications sent by a specific school. Notifications are sent when a positive test is reported to a school site, while the data dashboard will be updated based on official confirmation of COVID-19 status following further investigation.


What this dashboard is:

  • It is a record of current ACTIVE cases identified by a positive test (Rapid Antigen or PCR) for individuals who reported in person to a school or worksite in the District on a specific day.
  • It is a transparent snapshot of the current ACTIVE cases known as of the date the dashboard is visited. Data may change based on results of thorough investigations, additional testing, and completed quarantines. 
  • It is a tool that will allow visitors to filter data specific to any school or District facility.
  • It is a report of NUMBERS of active cases only, which protects the privacy of individuals.
  • It is a current record of ACTIVE cases known as of the date shown. There may be a delay in posting of data while its accuracy is verified.

What this dashboard is not:

    • It is not a cumulative total of all cases since the beginning of school. It only records individuals reported while they are contagious. It does not show inactive cases.
    • It is not a record of people quarantined based on close contact to a known positive COVID-19 case. Possible exposure does not equate to COVID-19 infection.
    • It is not an indicator of COVID-19 spreading on school campuses. Our isolation and quarantine protocols are designed to prevent spread of the disease. Identified COVID-19 infections reported may have originated outside of our schools and are stopped from spreading in the community because of our identification protocols.
    • It is not inclusive of students engaged only in distance learning or staff exclusively working remotely.
    • It is not a record of cases that occur during school holidays, travel or other circumstances where the COVID-19 case was not present at a school or District facility during the infectious period.

How to use the dashboard:

This dashboard shows District wide information. Visitors may filter down the data to display information for a specific geographic region and/or specific schools or for students/staff only. To change the display use the drop down menus below each filter to select the information you want to see.  When a selection is made the number in the chart will show only the information related to the area, school or population selected.


New Positive Reported Cases (Bar Graphs):
  The total number of people who reported having a confirmed positive test or diagnosis for the first time on the reporting date. 

Active Reported Positive Cases (Table):  The total number of people who actively have the ability to spread COVID-19 as of the most recent reporting date. Those who no longer have the ability to spread COVID-19 are no longer included in this count.

Example: If a school has three positive cases reported on the first day of the month. Their New Positive Reported Cases count would show three on that day. If two of those students are cleared and no longer contagious on the 10th of the month, but one remains contagious. The Active Reported Positive Cases on the 11th will be reduced to one.


For context while using this dashboard, the current population of students and staff  within the San Bernardino City Unified School District is: 

ENROLLMENT TOTAL: 46,898
TOTAL NUMBER OF STAFF: 8,197


Keeping Families and Employees Informed

In the event there is a confirmed positive case, all identified close contacts will be notified directly by their school, District staff or the school’s COVID liaison, and they will receive instructions on quarantine, symptom monitoring and testing, as appropriate. Families of students who are not affected will receive a general notification letter and no action will be required. 
 
The following process occurs in the case of a positive COVID-19 test of a student or staff member:

  • The student (student’s family) or staff member with a positive COVID test result reports to their school site (student) or immediate supervisor (staff) a positive COVID test result.
  • Appropriate contact tracing is immediately initiated by trained COVID-19 liaisons
  • Disinfection of any identified locations related to the positive COVID-19 test is completed by the District.
  • Principal or COVID-19 liaison sends the following letter(s):
  1. To the staff member or student (or student’s family) who tested positive with information about available resources and processes for returning after appropriate isolation.
  2. To staff members and students (or students’ guardians/families) who may have had close contact exposure, as determined by contact tracing, with directions on how to proceed.
  3. To all families informing school community of confirmed case
