Summary of Positive Reported COVID-19 Cases by Location

The chart below reflects the number of newly reported confirmed positive cases among GCPS staff and students for the past three-week period and is not cumulative. This chart is updated every Thursday by 4:00 P.M.
 
The content on this website depends on the expectation that GCPS parents/guardians and staff self-report confirmed positive cases. Additionally, GCPS relies on self-reporting or confirmation from the Garrett County Health Department for all positive cases. Therefore, the information contained on this page includes only students and staff who have tested positive and may not accurately reflect the total number of positive cases of COVID-19 within the GCPS community at large.

Know Your COVID-19 Community Level

COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area.
 

Visit the Garrett County Health Department website for the updated number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Garrett County and current metrics including the 7-Day Positivity Percentage, 7-Day Case Rate Per 100,000.
