School COVID Case Procedure & Tracking

The West Virginia Department of Education collaborated with the West Virginia Department of Health & Human Resources to develop a guidance for all counties on how to respond to a positive case or cases in WV schools. Please find this guidance at: https://wvde.us/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/COVID-Outbreak-in-Schools-092120-v5.pdf

You can also access the guidance by clicking here and selecting "Defining COVID-19 Outbreaks in School" under the Re-Entry Toolkit. 

Each time there in is a confirmed staff or student positive case in a KCS school, we will first notify the affected classroom or group, as well as the whole school, about the case. If there is an update to the situation, we will still first notify the affected classroom or group, as well as the whole school, first.

To increase transparency, we will also be posting information (school of confirmed positive individual, date of confirmed positive notification, number of confirmed active positive cases at school, whether the school is open/closed) about confirmed positive cases in our schools. This page will be updated each afternoon. 

Please refer to the guidance linked above if you have questions about the process. KCS works with the local Kanawha-Charleston Health Department (KCHD) in examining each situation. The KCHD contacts individuals who may have been exposed to a positive through their contact tracing process.
