COVID-19 Reporting Archive
District wants to be as transparent as possible in reporting information regarding COVID-19 cases while also protecting the identity and medical information of those impacted. Wickliffe City School District staff will notify all parents and guardians within a specific school via email when a positive COVID-19 case in that school is made known to the District. Those individuals determined to have been in contact and potentially exposed to COVID-19 will be contacted by District staff and/or the Lake County General Health District (LCGHD). The LCGHD will be responsible for contract tracing and follow-up with impacted individuals. Understand that the District will not provide information to the general public that would identify students or staff.
