BCSD COVID-19 Case Dashboard
The content of this database is general information for each Berkeley County School District site. Any necessary contact tracing is conducted by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC). This information is updated twice weekly when SCDHEC releases new statewide data. Please note that the numbers provided below are from SCDHEC and are 30-day cumulative counts.
Key points about this data
The reporting does not mean that students, faculty or staff contracted the virus at school
- Unlike a nursing home, where residents live at the facility, students, faculty and staff come and go from school and are active in their community and could come into contact with the virus outside of a school setting.
Delays in reporting?
- There may be in a delay in what cases are included in DHEC’s online reporting, as the agency works to receive the information, review it and confirm it before presenting it online.
Who is counted?
- Individuals who physically attend school on a regular basis will be included in the counts. Sports coaches, tutors, part-time employees, kitchen staff, custodial and maintenance workers and other school employees with a physical presence in schools will be included in these reports. Those students who participate in virtual or blended distance instruction but are on campus for extracurricular activities will also be included.
