Frederick County Public Schools provides this data dashboard for families, staff and community members as a summary of student and staff COVID-19 cases broken down by school. We balance transparency about reporting COVID-19 cases to the community with privacy for our staff, students and families. The data dashboard also provides updated county and state metrics via direct links to the official county and state reporting sites.
Classroom/cohort outbreak definition:
School-wide outbreak definition:
Note: The Maryland Department of Health makes the decision regarding whether or not cases qualify as a school outbreak.
Quarantine: A person must quarantine if in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless you have been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms.
Isolation: Isolation is used to separate people infected with COVID-19 from those who are not infected. People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others. At home, anyone sick or infected should separate from others, stay in a specific “sick room” or area, and use a separate bathroom (if available).
Probable case: Probable cases occur when an individual has been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 and becomes symptomatic regardless of vaccination status. Not reported on FCPS Metrics Dashboard
Confirmed case: Confirmed cases of COVID-19 are when an individual tests positive on a rapid antigen or PCR test. Those cases are reported on the FCPS Metrics Dashboard after they are reported to FCPS.
Data in this section will be updated daily based on the most recently available information. All data are preliminary and are subject to change based on additional reporting. Data reflects cases and deaths among Frederick County residents only. Hospitalizations shown are for Frederick Health Hospital and reflect all patients who have tested positive for COVID-19. Hospital data is delayed one day.
Data for ZIP codes with 7 or fewer cases are suppressed according to Maryland Department of Health guidelines.
Death data are presented by both date of report and by date of death. Death data are updated as amendments to the death record are received. Change in deaths in the last 24 hours does not mean that the deaths occurred in the last 24 hours, and some reports of deaths may be delayed.
