Reporting COVID-19 cases

Please use the following form to report positive COVID-19 cases connected to a school, childcare facility, camp, sports team, or other group:

  • Please provide parent/guardian contact information when reporting. Please do not send us contact information for any minors.
  • Please note that a close contact is generally defined as someone who had face-to-face contact with an infected person within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes. There may be exceptions to this criteria in certain cases where the risk of transmission is higher (e.g. during contact sports). In school classrooms and bus settings with universal masking, 3 feet for at least 15 minutes is used as the close contact criteria.
  • See the School/Childcare Reporting Flowchart for a Confirmed COVID-19 Case.
