MVUSD COVID-19 Data in Schools
The Murrieta Valley USD is committed to maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff while keeping our community informed on COVID-19 data in schools. This dashboard has been updated daily since March 1, 2021.
The data displayed on the dashboard represents the number of reported AND confirmed active COVID-19 positive cases. The dashboard represents the number of reported and active COVID-19 positive cases of students and staff who have been on our school or district campus within the past two weeks (14 days).
Please note: While confirmed positive cases remain on the dashboard for 14 days, students and staff return before this time, in accordance with national and state K-12 guidance that have established 5-10 day return period depending on a person’s unique circumstance.
The dashboard data is updated Mon-Fri each morning. It does not include virtual, homeschool or independent study students who are not physically present at a school site. These numbers are subject to change. The dashboard is a transparent snapshot of student and staff information reported to the school sites and district.
The dashboard is not an indicator of COVID-19 community transmission on school campuses. It is simply an indication of students and staff who have reported their positive cases to the school and may have been on campus while contagious.
Communication in the Event of Positive Cases
This public dashboard serves as the public notification for COVID-19 data in Murrieta Valley USD schools.
As of June 2022, the California Department of Public Health updated contact-tracing guidelines for TK-12 schools. Citing “the shorter incubation period and increased transmissibility of variants,” the California Department of Public Health stated that an alternative approach to contact tracing is warranted and schools may use local indicators and information from public health to evaluate approaches. For more information, please visit the CDPH Safe Schools for All, website.
What can Families do to Limit the Spread of COVID-19 in Schools?
It is going to take a team approach to keep our students, staff, and families safe. In addition to the health and safety measures taken on our campuses, we implore families to be proactive and reinforce the importance of handwashing and universal masking/face coverings during elevated seasons of COVID-19.
If your child is showing any symptoms associated with COVID-19, please keep them home and get tested. At-home test kits are available at all school offices. We strongly encourage you to please keep ill students at home!
Positive student cases should follow the guidance recommended by the CDPH
