WISD's COVID-19 Dashboards
To protect the health of our school community and per the Emergency Order issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Reporting of Confirmed and Probable Cases of COVID-19 at Schools on October 6, 2020, the Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD) will provide Public Notice to our school community regarding school associated cases of COVID-19. Within 24 hours of being notified of a school associated case by the Washtenaw County Health Department, our dashboard will be updated to include new and cumulative COVID-19 case counts. Individuals identified as close contacts of school associated cases will be notified separately and directly by the Washtenaw County Health Department.
WISD will provide two dashboards:
- Washtenaw County COVID-19 Data Metrics: This dashboard will include metrics such as the total number of cases in Washtenaw County, test positivity rates, and percentages of cases affecting school-age children.
- WISD COVID-19 Cases: This dashboard will include new and cumulative COVID-19 case counts associated with the Washtenaw Intermediate School District.

WISD School-Associated COVID-19 Cases
Cases listed below will be updated within 24 hours of the district being notified by the Washtenaw County Health Department of school-associated cases. If there are no new cases, the dashboard will be updated weekly on Thursday evenings.
School Response Actions
No additional actions outside of WISD's existing health and safety protocols are necessary at this time.
This information does not mean you should quarantine or isolate. Those members of the school community who were or are suspected to have been in close contact with a school associated case will be notified directly by the Washtenaw County Health Department or school officials.
Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of the individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you. With your participation and cooperation, we believe we can maintain a safe environment while also providing quality education.
Action You Can Take
We recommend taking action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if staff members or students are not experiencing symptoms:
- Get vaccinated when the opportunity is available to you, if you are able.
- Wear a mask (covering your mouth and nose) while in public places or if people who do not live you must visit your home.
- Practice social distancing by maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart.
- Practice frequent hand washing using soap for 20 seconds or hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol.
- Follow capacity restrictions of social gatherings.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or with the inside of your elbow and then immediately wash your hands.
- Stay home if you are sick, and consider getting tested.
- Answer the phone if the health department contacts you. A contact tracer may be trying to reach you with important information.
