Definitions

Active School-Linked Cases = Cases occurring within the same physical classroom or other physical space within 14 days of one another.

In-Person Positivity Rate = Number of in-person active cases divided by the number of students and staff we currently have in the building at least part of the time.

Consecutive Days of Hybrid Learning = Number of consecutive calendar days the campus has not had to close due to COVID-19 cases.

In-Person Active Cases = Current number of students and staff who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 and are in quarantine as a result. Does not include at-home students and staff.

All Active Cases = Current number of students and staff, including at-home students and staff, who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 and are in quarantine as a result.

All Cumulative Cases = Number of students and staff, including at-home students and staff, who have tested positive for COVID-19 since the start of school.
 

When Action Will Be Taken

Scenario #1: An outbreak defined by Illinois Department of Public Health

Five COVID-19 infections (laboratory-positive by PCR or antigen testing) occurring within 14 calendar days of each other in individuals in the same classroom would meet the case definition for an outbreak in a Pre-K-12 school. This is because the cases would be epidemiologically linked (by known exposure) with respect to place (same classroom) and time (within 14 calendar days). This would prompt an investigation by the Local Health Department that may result in recommendations for testing and quarantining all students/staff in the affected classroom.

Scenario #2: The Marian Catholic administrative team may opt to transition to eLearning temporarily or long-term if it is in the best health interests of the school community or if rising transmission rates in the general community make it unwise or infeasible to continue on-campus learning.
