Working with the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, outbreaks will be monitored and updates provided as needed during the 2021-2022 school year.

What is a “Confirmed Outbreak?”

An outbreak in a school setting is defined as:

  • Multiple cases comprising at least 10% of students, teachers, or staff, within a specified core group (e.g. classroom, extracurricular activity, sports team).
  • OR at least three cases within a specified core group (e.g. classroom, extracurricular activity, sports team).
  • COVID-19 cases with symptom onset or positive test result within 14 days of each other that were not identified as close contacts of each other in another setting (i.e., household) AND epidemiologically linked in the school setting.

The current Outbreaks in Schools chart is based on information provided by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. The number of cases shown below represents only those connected to an outbreak, not the total number of cases per school. The chart will be updated as details are made available.

If a school has 36 positive cases, they may have a subset of 6 cases which are classified as outbreak cases.
