Notes

  • These data and figures are presented for INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY .

  • COVID-19 case counts and rates are not specific to school districts or actual buildings. They are reported for the POPULATION RESIDING WITHIN A SCHOOL DISTRICT ATTENDANCE ZONE .

  • All COVID-19 information presented is based on the of data received from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). All case data are presented by REPORT DATE . The report date is the date when a new case of COVID-19 is reported to ODH.

  • For more information about this dashboard and data interpretation guidelines, please view this brief video tutorial.




  • COVID-19 case counts and rates DO NOT INCLUDE THOSE RESIDING IN CONGREGATE CARE SETTINGS, LIKE NURSING HOMES .

  • A COUNT is the actual number of people infected with COVID-19. A RATE is the number of people infected with COVID-19 for every 100,000 people in a defined population. For example, a COVID-19 case rate of 100 for Franklin County means that for every 100,000 people living in Franklin County, 100 are infected. Rates are useful for comparing different populations or geographies (for example, school districts of different sizes).

  • Student absences, staff absences, and student nurse visits data (if available) ARE PRELIMINARY AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE .

Case Rates, Age Distribution, and Levels of Community Transmission

Case Rates for School District Attendance Area and County


Notes: There are two different rates shown in the boxes below. The underlying data for each rate is the same and the main difference between the rates is the number of days that is used in the calculation. The two boxes below contain rates that allow for comparison between geographies with different population size. This is NOT the number of cases in the district or the county.
These two rates are useful when comparing data in this dashboard with data from other local, state and federal websites. Please note that the date range, reporting lags, and criteria used to calculate the number of COVID-19 cases may explain differences between the rates reported here and other dashboards/reports. Also, note that the rates reported here are based on cases reported to health departments and are NOT cases within a school district's building.

14 Days Rate (Among School Attendance Boundaries)

The 14 day rate for the school district is based on COVID-19 cases reported by individuals residing in the school district attendance area the last fourteen days. Similarly, the 14 day rate for the county is based on cases among residents anywhere in the county reported to public health during the past 14 days.

7 Days Rate (Among School Attendance Boundaries)

The 7 day rate for the school district is based on COVID-19 cases reported by individuals residing in the school district attendance area the last seven days. Similarly, the 7 day rate for the county is based on cases among residents anywhere in the county reported to public health during the past 7 days.

Age Distribution (based on last two weeks of COVID-19 case data)

Levels of Community Transmission (based on moving average of 7-day case rate per 100,000) in the past two months

Note: The levels of community transmission (red, orange, yellow and blue areas on the graph below) are based on how the CDC defines this measure as the total number of new cases reported over the past 7 days divided by the total population, which in this case is the school district attendance area, and multiplied by 100,000. On the CATS dashboard the values for the 7-day rate may differ because our calculation of new cases excludes congregate care settings and incarcerated populations, may use a different time window, and is based on the total population residing within a school district attendance area only. Therefore, it is not appropriate to compare the values from this dashboard with other dashboards and this information is provided for informational purposes only. For additional information on the CDC's levels of community transmission, please refer to this website .
