Clark County Public Health works closely with local schools and school districts to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on school campuses. Schools notify Public Health anytime someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 has been on the campus while potentially contagious.
Public Health assists schools in identifying close contacts who may have been exposed to COVID-19. Schools will notify those students and staff who are identified as close contacts and provide instruction on quarantine. People in quarantine should not leave home except to seek medical care. They should not go to work, school or child care facilities, and they should not participate in any social or community activities.
Everyone who tests positive for COVID-19 is instructed to isolate at home until they are no longer contagious, which is typically at least 10 days from the time symptoms began.

COVID-19 cases in schools
Most local school districts are providing COVID-19 case data on their websites. The websites provide case numbers among students and staff (by school) and the last date of exposure at the school. Some districts are also providing data on the number of close contacts in quarantine. Districts are updating the data regularly.
