Irving ISD COVID-19 Cases

  • ESPAÑOL

    Irving ISD is committed to keeping our students and staff safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to maintain transparency, the district has created a dashboard that will be updated daily with the number of test-confirmed cases reported in the district. 

    Below you will find the number of current test-confirmed cases by campus and central staff. Central staff is represented in the "other" column. This information is further broken down by students and staff. Please check this website daily to find the most up-to-date numbers. 

    To see the COVID-19 numbers from the 2020-2021 school year, click on last school year's COVID-19 Dashboard


**The Dashboard will be updated each day, Monday through Friday, for both staff and students.

COVID-19 Cases


COVID-19 Notification and Symptoms

  • COVID-19 positive:
    Any individuals who are lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 must stay at home throughout the infection period. These individuals cannot return to campus until the school system screens the individual to determine any of the below conditions for campus re-entry have been met.
     
    In the case of an individual who was diagnosed with COVID-19, the individual may return to school when all three of the following criteria are met:
     
    • At least one day (24 hours) has passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever reducing medications); AND
    • The individual has improvement in symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); AND
    • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
     
    Symptoms of COVID-19:
    Any individual with symptoms that could be COVID-19, but they were not evaluated by a medical professional or not tested for COVID-19, the student is assumed to have COVID-19 and may not return until the individual has met the same 3 step criteria above.
     
    If the individual wants to return to school before completing the 10 days stay at home, the student must either: (a) obtain a medical professional’s note clearing for return based on an alternative diagnosis or (b) take the rapid antigen test and receive a negative test result.
     
    Asymptomatic, close contact:
    Asymptomatic, vaccinated students or unvaccinated students, with mask or without mask
    • A student may stay in school and receive a rapid antigen test within days 3-5 (from close contact date) with parent consent. If the test is negative, the student may remain in school.
    • Per the Texas Education Agency, asymptomatic students in close contact with a positive case would not be required to quarantine. Dallas County Health department recommends a student receive a rapid antigen test within 3-5 days from the date of the close contact and Dallas County recommends wearing a mask for 14 days while indoors.
     
    Students are able to be tested by utilizing the BinaxNow rapid COVID test. These tests must be scheduled with campus nurses.
