COVID-19 Dashboard

Upper Arlington Schools is committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 as it affects our schools while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff. Based upon guidance from our Medical Advisory Team on best practices in reporting medical data, this dashboard reports data at the district level. The district will provide notification to staff and families in the affected school when a positive case is identified. 


Our district's COVID-19 Dashboard represents the number of positive COVID-19 cases among district staff and students as officially confirmed and reported to the district by Franklin County Public Health, the Ohio Department of Health or a licensed medical health-care provider. This data will be updated every Friday on this page.

This information is posted in compliance with the Ohio Department of Health order that requires K-12 schools to report and notify parents/guardians and local health departments when students, teachers, staff members or coaches test positive for COVID-19. The order also states that parents and guardians are encouraged to report positive cases to schools.

Please see below for questions and answers about our COVID-19 notification plans.

Will parents be notified when there’s a confirmed case of COVID-19 at their school?


The district will provide case notification to staff and families in the affected school when a positive case is identified, similar to other contagious diseases. Franklin County Public Health will follow up with individuals who are considered close contacts to alert them to monitor for symptoms. 


Will parents be notified of positive cases involving students within the UA Online Academy?


Notification of positive cases in the UA Online Academy will not be directly communicated, as these individuals do not attend school in person. However, these cases will be included in the overall count of active cases districtwide as reported on this page.


Will parents be notified of positive cases involving those in athletic, extra-curricular or co-curricular programs?


Notification of positive cases in athletic, extra-curricular or co-curricular programs will be provided to the impacted families of the students and their corresponding teams, clubs or groups.


CATS Data - COVID-19 Analytics and Targeted Surveillance

Upper Arlington Schools is a part of a pilot project with Ohio State, Hilliard City Schools and Dublin City Schools that will give us more specific data on what is happening within our school district’s specific attendance area.  This provides the Board of Education and our district with yet another layer of information that will help the Upper Arlington Board of Education make the best decisions possible as we move forward. This data will be updated every Friday on this page.


In the following graphics, EWMA, which stands for Exponentially Weighted Moving Average, is a statistic for monitoring the process that averages the data in a way that gives less and less weight to data as they are further removed in time.

Notes
  1. These data and figures are presented for informational purposes only.
  2. COVID-19 case counts and rates are not specific to school districts or actual buildings. They are reported for the population residing within a school district attendance zone.
  3. All COVID-19 information presented is based on the las two weeks of data received from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH).
  4. Reporting lags from ODH may distort data trends. Please interpret with caution.
  5. COVID-19 case counts and rates do not include those residing in congregate care settings, such as nursing homes.
  6. A count is the actual number of people infected with COVID-19. A rate is the number of people infected with COVID-19 for every 100,000 people in a defined population. For example, a COVID-19 case rate of 100 for Franklin County means that for every 100,000 people living in Franklin County, 100 are infected. Rates are useful for comparing different populations or geographies (for example, school districts of different sizes).
