Coronavirus and the classroom

— Wayne County Public Schools is launching a daily coronavirus dashboard.

The dashboard will show which schools and district support area sites have had people on their campuses test positive for the virus.

WCPS leaders said the dashboard will be updated daily by 6 p.m., with daily cases for that week remaining posted until the following week. Cases reported over a weekend will be posted the following Monday.

On Oct. 7, the school district announced one of its elementary schools was returning to online learning for two weeks because of a COVID-19 cluster. Four other schools in the district also reported possible exposures on their campuses.

WCPS returned students to the classroom for part-time, in-person learning on Sept. 8 after three weeks of online-only classes.
