Weekly Community Spread Summary

Note about Updates to This Section

This section has been updated to provide a weekly snapshot measuring the level of COVID-19 community spread in the State of Delaware. The School Reopening dashboard has been replaced with a weekly community spread summary. The previous School Reopening dashboard was based on the State’s understanding of COVID-19 at the time it was developed, in August 2020. We have learned a lot since the summer months and no longer believe that the reopening dashboard was an accurate reflection of the conditions in our schools. The Division of Public Health (DPH) will continue to work closely with school leaders to monitor conditions. A new dashboard reflecting data about in-person attendance and cases among students and staff in schools - including district level data - has been added to the My Healthy Community COVID-19 data portal. It can be found here.
