This page was created to advise our community about changing conditions as they relate to COVID-19 and Weatherford ISD. Our goal is to be transparent and share as much information as possible while also protecting the health privacy of our students and staff.
The numbers reflected in the data chart represent positive cases of COVID-19 as reported to Weatherford ISD for individuals who have been present at our campuses or departments. Data reported is from August 25, 2020 to the present date.
The WISD COVID-19 Dashboard includes:
Notification of confirmed positive cases of individuals who have been present at a campus or department will be communicated via email to the staff and parents at the appropriate campus or department.
We ask for your patience as we work to first take care of the individual who tests positive and anyone in which they may have come into close contact. These individuals are contacted directly by their supervisor and by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS).
Notifying WISD of a Positive Case
Should you or someone in your household experience symptoms or test positive for COVID-19, please contact the school nurse. Cases will be reported to the campus principal, Director of Nursing Services, and to District Administration to ensure appropriate notifications and cleaning protocols are followed.

The definition of close contact according to the Centers for Disease Control and the Texas Education Agency is evolving with our understanding of COVID-19, and individual scenarios should be determined by an appropriate public health agency. In general, close contact is defined as:
Either (a) or (b) defines close contact if it occurred during the infectious period of the case, defined as two days prior to symptom onset to 10 days after symptom onset. In the case of asymptomatic individuals who are lab-confirmed with COVID-19, the infectious period is defined as two days prior to the confirming lab test and continuing for 10 days following the confirming lab test.
Close contacts should follow the stay at home protocol as outlined by the CDC. COVID-19 testing for close contacts is not necessary, as negative test results can occur at any time while the virus is incubating. The role of schools in identifying close contacts is to provide relevant information to local health departments, not to determine close contacts in the absence of public health guidance.
Direct exposure to a lab confirmed case of COVID-19. Quarantine period is 14 days from exposure to allow observation for symptoms
