Local COVID-19 Updates for the Gallatin R-V School District
The Gallatin R-V School District is working in collaboration with the Daviess County Health Department and is following its guidance when positive cases of COVID-19 are reported within the district. For the latest information about COVID-19 from the Health Department, click here.
In an effort to keep our community informed during the 2021-22 school year, the number of all reported positive cases involving GR5SD students and staff will be included on the dashboard below. This dashboard will be updated as new cases are identified, and will not include personally identifiable information.
When GR5SD becomes aware of a positive case or the potential for an exposure, those who may have come in contact with that individual will be notified.
When the Gallatin R-V School District receives notification and confirmation of a student or staff member testing positive for COVID-19 the following steps will be taken:
The district will begin the process to determine when the student/staff member became symptomatic and whether they were on school property while symptomatic;
If it is determined the student/staff member was not on school property within 48 hours before becoming symptomatic and has had no close contact with other students/staff members, communication will not be sent;
If it is determined the student/staff member was on school property within 48 hours before becoming symptomatic, the district will begin our contact tracing process to determine whether any other students or staff members may be identified as having close contact with the individual and notification will be sent to the impacted individuals.
