COVID-19 Data Dashboard

Dalton Public Schools will remain as transparent as possible with our parents, staff, students and community about what is happening in our schools. We have created this page as a source of up-to-date information with current COVID-19 cases and exposures.

The reporting on this web page is consistent with the reports schools in Georgia are submitting weekly to the Georgia Department of Education.

The information below will be updated daily with the number of positive COVID-19 cases reported each day. At the bottom of the chart is the seven-day rolling average of new positive cases diagnosed. The rest of this page will continue to be updated weekly on Fridays.

COVID-19 Positive Cases Contracted from Dalton Public Schools

*These numbers were reported to the Georgia Department of Education on 12/3/2021

This chart reflects the number of cases reported to the Georgia Department of Education as "cluster" cases. See definition below. In many cases, the source of infection cannot be determined. 

Contracted from School Spread: Laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 in two or more people (students, teachers, staff) with earliest symptoms or test dates within 14 days of each other. To be part of a cluster, COVID-19 cases would have to had contact with one another, NOT share a household, and not be identified as close contacts of each other in another setting outside of school or school-related activity. For example, if four friends who attend the same school but are in classes/activities that do not mix have a sleepover and all get sick, this would NOT be a school cluster, though it could possibly lead to cases within the school setting.

Current Active COVID-19 Positive Cases Contracted from Community Spread

*These numbers are included in reports from our local health department and the Georgia Department of Public Health.

Total Number of Students and Staff Currently in Quarantine Due to COVID-19 Positive Test or Exposure

*These numbers were reported to the Georgia Department of Education on 12/3/2021.

Summary of All Cases and Quarantines

This includes ALL active positive COVID-19 cases, not just cases diagnosed this week. We will continue to report an individual's active COVID-19 case until they are able to return to school/work. Because of this, one case could be reported for multiple weeks.
