COVID data dashboard

Information on COVID-19 cases connected to VPS is now available in a new data dashboard. This dashboard provides staff, families and the public with case numbers that are not readily available from other sources.

Email notification about a positive case is sent to the staff and families of the affected location usually within 24 hours of the case being reported to the district's COVID response team. The new dashboard does not replace these notifications. It is intended to provide a more comprehensive picture of COVID cases around the district.

Visit the dashboard.

Clark County Public Health previously reported all school-related cases on its dashboard, but now reports only school outbreaks.

Employee vaccinations

Washington state is in Phase I B, Tier 1 of its vaccination schedule. This includes people who are 65 and older, and people who are 50 and older who also live in a multigenerational household. School employees are included in Phase IB, Tier 2 and 4. The start date for vaccinating people in Tiers 2 and 4 hasn’t been announced, and it is dependent on vaccine supply. Get more information.
