Lee County Schools COVID-19 Dashboard
With students beginning to return to school, Lee County Schools has launched a COVID-19 Dashboard. The goal of the dashboard is to give the community information about the impact of COVID-19 on the school district by providing data on the positive cases and quarantines for students and staff. The data includes cases known by school and district nursing staff and does not include students in full-time virtual instruction who are not reporting to school campuses. Names and other identifying information will not be included in this data. The dashboard can be found on the Lee County Schools website under the COVID-19 tab and will be updated each school day by 5 p.m.
Definitions of Reported Data
"Positive" only includes individuals with a lab-confirmed positive test. Negative Rapid test results must be followed with a negative PCR test to be valid.
When Individuals are exposed to a positive case they will be quarantined and monitored for symptoms for at least 14 days.
Individuals who test positive must quarantine for at least 10 days. Individuals who have tested positive must be fever free and symptoms drastically improved for at least 24 hours (without fever reducing medication) prior to return to work or school.
"Quarantine" includes individuals who might have been exposed to COVID-19 or who have recently had close contact with someone with COVID-19.
"Close Contact" or “exposure” includes individuals who were within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 cumulative minutes starting from 48 hours before symptom onset or testing if asymptomatic.

School data includes cases known by school and district nursing staff. Data does not include students in full-time virtual instruction who are not reporting to school campuses.
1/15/2021To Our Lee County Schools Families,It came to our attention this week that the Cumulative Summary by School & District Support Facilities chart numbers did not match our District Cumulative Summary numbers on our COVID-19 Dashboard. In an effort to be as transparent and accurate as possible in our COVID-19 reporting, we have researched and corrected the discrepancies, resulting in a one-time significant change in our cumulative data. The good news is that our cumulative numbers are much lower than had been previously reported. Thank you to those who brought this to our attention. Painting an accurate picture of COVID-19 exposure within our school district remains our top priority - now and in the future.
