ILTexas COVID-19 Data - Option 3/In-Person

The following is a real-time report of positive COVID-19 cases for Option 3/In-Person students and staff. These numbers are updated on a daily basis or as new cases are reported. Please email with any questions. 

In order to determine who needs to be quarantined when we have a COVID-19 positive case on a campus, we use the following groupings: 

Category 1 - A COVID-19 positive individual. This person will need to be isolated for 10 days before they can return to campus. 

Category 2 - An exposed individual. This person has been in close contact - within six feet for a cumulative total of fifteen minutes or longer over a 24-hour period - per CDC guidelines. These individuals are at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 and need to be quarantined for 10 days, per CDC and local health authority guidelines*. 

Category 3 - Exposure without close contact. This person may have passed a COVID-19 positive individual in the hall or in a classroom, but did not have an extended interaction with the COVID-19 positive individual and does not fit the definition of close contact. This individual is at low risk of contracting COVID-19 and does not need to quarantine. 

Category 4 - No exposure. This person may have been in the same building as a COVID-19 individual, but never came into contact with the positive individual. This person is at very low risk of contracting COVID-19 and does not need to quarantine. 

*Note - ILTexas closely follows the guidance of the CDC, TEA, and local health authorities. Timelines and definitions are updated frequently to reflect the most up-to-date guidance.
