COVID-19 Dashboard

When MAISD staff receive notification of a positive case, they will notify Public Health-Muskegon County and assist them with contact tracing.

There will also be times when Public Health alerts MAISD of a positive or probable case. Public Health will identify close contacts and will order them to quarantine. A close contact means any individual who was within six feet of a COVID-19 infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from two days before illness onset, or two days prior to testing positive for those that are asymptomatic. Please see the CDC website to learn what you can do to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

"As long as there are cases of COVID-19 in the community, there will be no way to prevent all risks of COVID-19 spread in schools. The goal is to keep the risk as low as possible and keep schools/school activities as safe as possible."-- Public Health-Muskegon County Return to School Toolkit
