Lovejoy ISD COVID Cases - Dashboard

 

 

In an effort to keep our parents, staff, and community informed, the dashboard below will be updated daily to reflect active test-confirmed COVID-19 cases in Lovejoy ISD. 

 

When the district is notified of a test-confirmed positive case, parents and staff at the impacted campus will receive direct communication from Lovejoy ISD. In addition, Lovejoy ISD will personally contact individuals who may have come in close contact (as defined by TEA) with a test-confirmed positive case on campus. If you are NOT directly contacted, then you are NOT someone who was identified as having close contact with a positive individual. 

 

Close contact with a lab-confirmed case:

 

Close contact is defined as either of the following occurring at any time in the last 14 days when the infected individual was infectious: 

 

a. being directly exposed to fluids from the mouth or nose (e.g., being coughed on); or
b. being within 6 feet for a cumulative duration of 15 minutes

 

Either (a) or (b) defines close contact if it occurred during the infectious period of the case, defined as two days prior to symptom onset to 10 days after symptom onset. In the case of asymptomatic individuals who are test-confirmed with COVID-19, the infectious period is defined as two days prior to the confirming lab test and continuing for ten days following the confirming lab test.

 

Any students, teachers, or staff who have had "close contact" with an individual who is test-confirmed with COVID-19, must remain off campus until the 14-day incubation period has passed. 

 

Although the district discloses case information to Collin County Health Services, we must maintain confidentiality for the individual who tests positive. Due to our enrollment numbers and to ensure we protect the privacy of our Lovejoy ISD students and staff, numbers reported on our public website will be aggregated to show elementary and secondary numbers. Please note: Families will receive a notification if there is an active, positive case at their specific campus. 

 

 

*updated throughout the day

 

* For cases under 20, Lovejoy ISD will report numbers as an aggregate to help protect the identity of our students and staff. LISD will personally contact individuals who may have come in close contact (as defined by TEA) with a lab-confirmed positive case on campus. If you are NOT directly contacted, then you are NOT someone who was identified as having close contact with a positive individual.

 

 

If you or someone in your household experiences symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19, please contact the campus school nurse as soon as possible. Cases will be reported to the Campus Principal and Administration to ensure appropriate notifications and cleaning protocols are followed.
