COVID-19 Metrics

  • The tables below provide a listing of COVID-19 cases reported by staff and students of the Wake County Public School System.

    Families are notified by email and text whenever a confirmed case of COVID-19 is reported at their school. Information for staff is shared via WakeConnect. 

    The information reflected on this page includes all cases reported to the district. The district verifies the individual’s positive test result with Wake Public Health and shares that verification in the “confirmed” column. 

    Prior to Dec. 22, 2020, cases were posted weekly and only confirmed cases were included. Beginning Jan. 4, 2021, cases were listed on a daily basis and marked as confirmed, negative, pending results, unconfirmed or presumed positive.

    Linked cases

    A school system cannot eliminate COVID-19 from the 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.  If cases are linked inside of a school community, it will be marked as a Suspected Campus Link in the chart below. 

    Cases that are linked means it is likely that someone in the school spread the virus to another person in the school while on campus. 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 Wake County Public Health.
