COVID-19 INFORMATION/DASHBOARD 

To protect the health of our school community and as required under the Emergency Order issued by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Reporting of Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 at Schools on October 6, 2020, Hebrew Day School of Ann Arbor will use this webpage to provide public notice regarding any school-associated cases of COVID-19. Within 24 hours of being notified of a confirmed case by the Washtenaw County Health Department this dashboard will be updated. 

IMPORTANT: This dashboard is not intended to provide notification of possible exposure. Individuals identified as close contacts of positive cases are contacted directly by the Washtenaw County Health Department and Hebrew Day School, and given instructions to isolate or quarantine. A “close contact” is someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period, starting from 2 days before illness onset (or 2 days before the infected person was tested) until the time the infected person is isolated. Close contacts are determined through the contact tracing process.  Close contacts must quarantine for 14 days past the last date of contact with the positive individual.

Actions You Can Take

We recommend taking action to help limit the spread of COVID-19, even if staff members or students are not experiencing symptoms:

  • Wear a mask (covering mouth and nose) while in public places or if people who do not live with you must visit your home.
  • Practice social distancing (maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart).
  • Practice frequent handwashing (using soap for 20 seconds or hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol).
  • Follow capacity restrictions of social gatherings. 
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or with the inside of your elbow and immediately wash your hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick; you can also get tested.
  • Answer the phone or call back promptly, if the health department contacts you. A contact tracer may be trying to reach you with important information.

Individuals who were or are suspected to have been in close contact with a positive case will be notified by the Washtenaw County Health Department and school officials.  

Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the names of the individuals with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.  With your participation, we can maintain the safest learning environment possible.
