Voyager Academy COVID-19 Case Dashboard
COVID-19 Dashboard Data
Starting with the return of in-person instruction in January families and staff will be notified via email whenever a confirmed case of COVID-19 is reported at their school. We will also provide weekly updates on the number and location of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the COVID dashboard table below. COVID-19 cases of students learning remotely or cases that do not affect our school are not reported on the Voyager COVID-19 dashboard.
Cases are reported for each school community with staff and students combined. This is done to help maintain individual privacy and emphasize the fact that it is the spread of the virus inside a school, not among individual groups inside the school, that matters most. Anyone considered to be a close contact of an affected individual will be contacted by Durham County Public Health.
Please keep in mind that Voyager Academy cannot eliminate COVID-19 from the entire school community. It can, however, slow and even stop the spread of the virus inside a school by strictly following health guidance about face coverings, social distancing and hand washing. Single cases in a school are inevitable. The spread of the virus is not. That is why single cases are specifically marked in the table below. If cases are linked inside of a school community, it will be marked in the bottom section of the table. Cases that are linked means someone in the school spread the virus to another person in the school while on campus. This is also called secondary transmission. The goal of compliance is to reduce or eliminate linked cases on campus.
Clusters, which are defined as 5 or more linked cases, are confirmed by Durham County Public Health.
*Please note: Each case listed in the table below does not always equal a different individual. For example, if an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 was in three different schools on the same day, that would count as a separate case in each school. A more detailed description of what happens where there is a COVID-19 case on a campus can be found under the “What Happens at School When There is a Positive COVID-19 Case” tab.
