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.

6/8/2021To Our Lee County Schools Families and Community,As COVID-19 restrictions are lifting and more and more of our staff and students are getting vaccinated, we are regaining some normalcy in our schools and support facilities. With this increasing normalcy, we have been reporting fewer cases, and have decided to discontinue maintaining our COVID-19 Dashboard. We will keep the Dashboard active for transparency and archival purposes, but will not update it after today. Thank you to our families and community for helping our students, staff and schools be successful during this challenging year. We couldn't have done it without all of you!
