Several local schools shifted to virtual learning this week amid an omicron-fueled surge in coronavirus cases among students and staff, as reported by the school system on its COVID-19 dashboard on Jan. 3. 

In total, 27 Baltimore County schools, or specific grades or programs within those schools, have reached a positivity rate threshold of at least 5%, or have a minimum of 10 students and/or staff who have confirmed COVID-19 within a 14-day period. Some other factors also could have been considered.
