SDJ COVID-19 Dashboard

To provide more information regarding COVID-19 in schools, the SDJ has established a dashboard to provide the number of active positive COVID-19 cases in students and staff. Also provided is the number of individuals that are considered active close contacts (and are quarantining) as well as the number of people that are considered active low-risk individuals.

This site will not be updated over the summer months.

When the SDJ is notified of a student or staff member who has tested positive with COVID-19, district staff begin the process of contact tracing to determine who may need to be designated as a ‘close contact’ or a ‘low risk contact’ of the positive individual. Note:  SDJ staff are only able to do contact tracing for the cases that are affiliated with SDJ schools, and are not able to conduct follow-up/contact tracing for cases that are affiliated with entities outside of school (i.e., stores, restaurants, other places of employment).

As SDJ staff conduct the contact tracing for students or staff members, anyone who is identified as a close contact will be called directly by the school staff. Those that are identified as close contacts and low risk individuals will be provided with information on what they need to do with respect to quarantining or monitoring for symptoms. As a general rule, anyone that has been identified as positive COVID-19 is not allowed to return to school until: 

  • 10 days after the date of their first positive COVID-19 test; AND 
  • No other symptoms associated with COVID-19 have developed; AND
  • A note from a health care provider is presented stating it is appropriate for the person to return to work or school. 
  • NOTE: Rock County Public Health Department may have additional return to school requirements on a case-by-case basis.


  Elementary Middle High Total
Active Positive Covid-19 1 0 0 1
Close Contact^ (Quarantine) 5 0 0 5
Students out of school for COVID-19 related issues 18 0 1 19
NOTE: The student data on this page relies on parents notifying their child's school in a timely fashion of the status of their child(ren). 
Even during times of distance learning, parents are encouraged to contact their child's school when a child is positive for COVID-19 or deemed a close contact in order for the District to have accurate data to determine whether schools should re-open for face-to-face learning or remain in distance learning. 

STAFF (UPDATED June 2, 2021)

  Elementary Middle High/ESC^^ Total
      Active Positive Covid-19
0 0 0 0
Close Contact^ (Quarantine) 0 0 0 0

*The close contacts number for staff include those that have had potential exposure from outside their work location (for example, perhaps a household family member tested positive).
^Close contact is defined as someone who was within 6 feet of the positive person for more than 15 minutes, with or without a mask. The close contacts for students are related to the active COVID-19 positive cases. Low risk is defined as someone who has shared a classroom or gathering space with the positive individual, but does not meet the definition of a close contact. Per Rock County Public Health Department guidelines, anyone who is identified as a close contact needs to quarantine for 14 days. Those identified as low risk do not need to quarantine themselves, but should monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19.
^^ ESC: includes staff that are not assigned to a specific grade level building, or serve in a district-wide capacity.
