BCPS COVID-19 Datat dashboard as of November 16.

Baltimore County Public Schools has launched an online COVID-19 data dashboard that will be updated every Friday.

The dashboard provides data on COVID-19 cases in Baltimore County Public Schools and Baltimore County based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Maryland Department of Health.

On the dashboard, graphs and tables show the average seven-day case rate per 100,000 Baltimore County residents, the seven-day percent positive rate, the number of BCPS schools with outbreaks (of the schools that are open to students) as well as the current BCPS School Opening Score (and details about how it is calculated).

More information about how the BCPS School Opening Score is calculated and used can be found in “Safety Is Our True North.”

“Baltimore County Public Schools is pleased to share this important information with the public in an easily accessible format,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams.

“We are committed to using the latest data and best medical guidance to advise our decision-making during this unprecedented time and to being transparent about how decisions are being made.”

Additional information about COVID-19 Guidance for Maryland Schools, the Maryland COVID-19 Data Dashboard, and the Baltimore County Response Hub are available online.
