Keeping the Community Informed
Per guidance from the Iowa Department of Public Health, DCG Schools will treat COVID-19 similar to influenza and other common child illnesses. Students who believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 in or outside of school are not required to quarantine and should monitor for symptoms.
Due to health department changes in quarantine requirements, DCG will not contact trace to identify individuals as “close contacts” who may have been exposed to COVID-19 in the school setting.
This chart has been created to provide parents with “at-a-glance” positive case information. It is updated once a week and date stamped at the bottom of the table. An asterisk (*) denotes fewer than five (5) cases and is not disclosed based on the premise of privacy.
