The Naugatuck Public Schools COVID-19 Dashboard tracks data to help inform operational decisions. The dashboard is updated daily M-F by 9 PM. Naugatuck Public Schools is committed to protecting the privacy of individual students, faculty and staff information while simultaneously sharing the general Covid-19 related health status of our school community. In light of this, student and staff information will be combined.
In alignment with the guidelines from the Department of Public Health (DPH) and the Naugatuck Valley Health District (NVHD) any Naugatuck Public School staff member or student who has a confirmed case of the COVID-19 virus must isolate at home. NPS will notify the school community of the positive case and will collaborate with the NVHD to conduct the contract tracing. Anyone who is a close contact to a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 must quarantine for 14 days to help prevent the potential spread of the virus. “Close contact” is defined by DPH as spending at least 15 minutes within 6 feet of a person with confirmed COVID-19 within 24 hours. A member of the NPS or NVHD staff will notify individuals who are considered close contacts.
The data included in the dashboard includes all individuals who are under quarantine regardless of if they traveled to a red area or were exposed at a Naugatuck School, from a family member, or in the community. As individuals are cleared to return to work or school they are removed from the dashboard. In addition, individuals who are participating in our Distance Learning Program are now included in the dashboard.
