Weekly Message on COVID Statistics
Tom Mulligan
Saturday, November 21, 2020

The mitigation standards established by the governor this week that went into effect today, November 20 do not directly impact schools with the exception of extra-curricular athletics. The district will follow all guidelines and standards established by the governor, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), and the IHSA.  IHSA has temporarily paused all winter athletics..

If you recall, the Arcola School District decided last week to move to a weekly report of positive covid cases at school. This new weekly report is meant to provide more accurate information to the public about the on-going cases in the school district.  The first two lines represent individuals that were confirmed positive to the school (the school was notified this week they were positive) and were in the building the prior week during their “exposure period (48 hours prior to symptoms)”, which caused the district to contact trace at school.  The last two lines represent individuals that were confirmed positive to the school (the school was notified this week they were positive) and were in the building this week during their “exposure period”, which caused the district to contact trace at school.

As you can see the district saw very few cases this week.  In addition,only two students were quarantined for being in close contact with the positive cases at school.

Here is the data for the week of 11/16 – 11/20:
