COVID-19 cases in schools

Clark County Public Health works closely with local schools and school districts anytime someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 has been on a school campus while potentially contagious.

Public Health interviews people who test positive for COVID-19 to determine where they have been and who they may have exposed. If someone who tested positive for COVID-19 was in a school while potentially contagious, Public Health works with the school to identify students and staff who may have been exposed. 

Schools will notify those students and staff who are identified as close contacts. All close contacts of COVID-19 cases are asked to quarantine for 14 days from their last exposure to the person who tested positive. 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.

Data on COVID-19 cases in schools

Clark County Public Health is providing information about cases in local public and private K-12 schools. Public Health is only providing information about cases who were on the school campus while potentially contagious or who were likely exposed to the virus at school.

For each school with a COVID-19 case, we will provide the following information:

  • Date: The date the COVID-19 test was administered.
  • Student/staff member/visitor: Whether the case is a student, staff member or visitor to the school. 
  • Exposed at school: "Yes" means the case was likely exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 at school. "No" means the case was likely exposed elsewhere. This is determined through Public Health case interviews.

Lab turnaround time varies. Providers are required to notify Public Health of all positive results within 24 hours. Public Health then begins its case investigation process by interviewing the individual who tests positive and working with the impacted school to identify any potential exposures and notify close contacts. The investigation may take several days to complete.

This data will be updated every Thursday. Last updated Nov. 25 (updated on Wednesday due to Thanksgiving holiday).
