District 67 COVID-19 Dashboard Update
The D67 Dashboard has been updated for the week of February 8, 2021, to reflect the latest information from our schools and local health departments. The incidence rates continue to decline at both the local and county levels. Due to delays with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) reporting system, data are up to date through February 10, unless otherwise noted. Hospitalization data visualizations are up to date through February 8. Testing data visualizations are up to date through November 17. 

Updates to Health and Safety Guidance
The D67 Health and Safety Guidance has been updated with the latest information from the CDC, IDPH and LCHD. The guidance can be accessed through “The MAP” on the District 67 homepage. Updates have been provided to the need for a release letter for close contacts; quarantine requirements for close contacts; and travel.  

Weekly COVID-19 Surveillance Testing
We completed our first week of surveillance testing in all schools. If your child participated, we are assuming they will continue weekly, unless you contact the school nurse. If your child brought a paper copy of their QR code for testing, we kept them at the school for future use. There is no need to print out another one. If your child did not participate and you would like to schedule testing to begin next week, please refer to the District 67 Registration site to schedule an appointment.
