BCSD COVID-19 Case Dashboard
As the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) works to track cases of COVID-19 across the state, there is an understandable delay in reporting confirmed cases in public schools. Berkeley County School District is committed to providing stakeholders with accurate and timely information so the BCSD COVID-19 Case Dashboard has been updated to reflect the number of confirmed cases reported directly to Berkeley County School District. These numbers will be updated every business day to provide our community with a more accurate accounting of confirmed cases in Berkeley County schools.
The content of this database is general information for each location. Any necessary contact tracing is conducted by SCDHEC. This information is updated at the close of each business day. Please note the numbers provided are numbers of confirmed cases reported to the Berkeley County School District and are 14-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?
- COVID-19 confirmed cases for district schools will be updated at the end of every business day to reflect the most accurate date available. Any delays in reporting may be a result of case confirmation received over a weekend or while offices are closed for a holiday.
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.
