Colonial COVID-19 Dashboard
Updated: October 21, 2021
NOTE: This chart shows positive cases of students and staff who have been physically present in District schools over a rolling 10-day period. The number of positive cases in a school is not the only factor used in determining whether or not a building stays open or returns to all-virtual learning.
The District analyzes a variety of different factors (such as the size of the school, the current model of instruction, transmission in school) and also consults with the Montgomery County Office of Public Health to determine whether or not a building stays open or closed. For additional details, see Who is included in the numbers? below.

The Colonial COVID-19 Dashboard is designed to keep the Colonial Community updated with the most recent and accurate information relating to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our schools.
This information will be updated daily or as the District receives information regarding a positive case. Information received after 4 p.m. or on a weekend/holiday may be documented on the next school day.
Who is included in the numbers?
The Colonial COVID-19 Dashboard includes students and staff who have attended school in-person at least once in the past ten days and have tested positive for COVID-19. Fully virtual students are only included if they participate in athletics or extracurricular activities that have brought them to campus at least once in the past ten days. Cases are reported to the Colonial School District by the individual or the Montgomery County Office of Public Health.
Inclusion in the dashboard does not mean that an individual contracted COVID-19 at a Colonial School District (CSD) building or event.
CSD Health Services and administration work cooperatively with Montgomery County Office of Public Health (MCOPH) to provide notification and contact tracing to affected individuals. If you do not hear directly from CSD Health Services/administration or MCOPH, it is because you are not considered at risk due to these cases. To ensure patient privacy, CSD will not provide any further information regarding affected individuals.
Students and staff are encouraged to follow safety protocols — such as maintaining six-foot social distancing, wearing a mask, washing hands and avoiding large crowds — both inside and outside of school to help mitigate the spread of the virus.
Anyone concerned about symptoms of or exposure to COVID-19 should contact their health care provider or MCOPH. Click here to visit the Montgomery County Office of Public Health.
