July 28, 2020, through August 27, 2020:

16 total reported positive student cases out of 5813 in-person students
12 total reported positive staff cases
67 total students quarantined due to being determined to have had close contact* with another

All Cumberland County Schools classrooms and buses have seating charts. When a student
is reported as COVID 19-positive, those charts are reviewed. Pursuant to Tennessee Department
of Health guidelines, the names and contact information of students determined to have been in
close contact* with the positive student are provided to that agency.

The Tennessee Department of Health is in charge of contact tracing and determines the
individuals who are notified. Parents must notify individual schools that their student has been
instructed by the Health Department to quarantine. Cumberland County Schools continues to
follow all Tennessee Department of Health guidelines in the interest of student and staff health
and safety.

This information will be posted on our website at www.ccschools.k12tn.net and updated
weekly.

*Cumberland County Schools defines “close contact”, consistent with Tennessee Department of
Health guidelines: Being within 6 feet of a sick person with COVID-19 for about 10 minutes, or
longer. Comparatively, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) defines close contact as less than
6 feet of a sick person with COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes.
