OJRSD COVID Response
On August 17, 2020, the Board of School Directors approved the OJRSD COVID Health & Safety Plan. This plan includes extensive operational plans for safely operating all aspects of schools. While the plan was develped in consultation with various health and educational organizations, we update the plan monthly based on guidance from the Chester County Health Department (CCHD).
Below, please find the weekly update of confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 reported to the District within our schools (staff member or student) since we transitioned to blended learning on October 12.
For background, when the District is informed of a positive case, the school nurse contacts the Chester County Health Department (CCHD) and follows their directions as to whom should be specifically informed that he/she may have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive case and who must quarintine due to close contact.
*In order for a positive case to be placed on this report:
- The reported COVID-19 case has been confirmed through a lab test.
- A student needs to have attended school in-person at least one day within the last 10 calendar days.
- OJRSD staff member or substitute staff member who worked on district grounds or in district buildings.
