LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County School District is reporting 868 COVID-19 cases districtwide as of Nov. 24. Numbers are updated on the district’s recently released COVID-19 dashboard.
There have been 436 positive cases among staff, 313 among students and 119 among the central staff.
The tool helps inform parents and staff on COVID-19 cases. It identifies which schools and work locations have had — or currently — have positive COVID-19 cases.
The cases displayed on the dashboard are cumulative cases that have been tracked since March 16, 2020 for staff and students. The data in the dashboard is from internally confirmed and self-reported cases and will not make a distinction between students who are in a face-to-face or distance learning plan.
Cases are also broken down by zip codes and can be viewed on a map of the Las Vegas valley.
The dashboard was launched when the district was preparing to consider students returning to the classroom.
On Nov. 9, CCSD released a plan for transitioning students to a hybrid educational model that would consist of face-to-face instruction for two days and three days of distance education for students each week. The CCSD Board of Trustees tabled the decision as COVID-19 cases surged in Nevada.
On Nov. 16, the Clark County School District announced that it will continue distance learning for the remainder of the semester. The District also said they plan to present a new transition plan in January 2021.
Gov. Steve Sisolak issued a “Stay at Home 2.0 urging all Nevadans to stay home as much as possible, followed by a ‘pause directive,’ bringing back some additional restrictions to businesses in an effort to bring the state’s positive COVID-19 case numbers down.
