DHEC unveiled a new interactive online resource that provides COVID-19 cases associated with students, faculty and staff and all kindergarten-12 grade public and private schools in the state.

As announced earlier last week, this school reporting dashboard is available at scdhec.gov/COVID19schools. The information within the school reporting dashboard will be updated twice weekly, on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.

It’s important to remember that this reporting does not mean that students, faculty or staff contracted the virus at school; only those students, faculty and staff who physically attend school or a school’s campus on a regular basis will be included in the counts; and some schools may choose to self-announce cases before they are reflected in DHEC’s twice-weekly reports.

On Sept. 4, DHEC reported 1,511 new confirmed cases and 34 new probable cases of the coronavirus. DHEC also reported 37 additional confirmed deaths and 2 new probable deaths.

The total number of individual test results reported to DHEC yesterday statewide was 8,261 (not including antibody tests) and the percent positive was 18.3%.
