Update Regarding COVID-19 Test Result Notifications
Posted on 03/23/2020

Dear Jeffco Public Schools families, staff, and community,

We are writing to you in collaboration with our partners at Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH), with a communication update regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) testing and notifications.

Our partners at JCPH share that COVID-19 is continuing to spread in Colorado and in our community. Given the now widespread nature of this virus, a confirmed diagnosis is not unexpected. JCPH investigates each positive case, and if it’s determined that a member of the Jeffco Public Schools community has been in close contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19, JCPH will notify them directly. Individuals who have not been in close contact will not be notified.

Because of this, moving forward Jeffco Public Schools will not be notifying school communities of positive test results. As JCPH advises, our assumption should be that we have all potentially been exposed in one place or another. Please be assured that the Jeffco Public Schools Health Services Director will be informed by JCPH of all positive cases of COVID-19 involving those in our community, and we will continue to take all necessary actions to protect public health.

For information on COVID-19, visit these informative websites:

We wish you a restful spring break, and look forward to welcoming students back on Tuesday, March 31 when we resume remote learning. We encourage our entire community to practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from other people, staying at home as much as possible, limiting time in stores, and adhering to any other directives from our public officials, in order to reduce the spread of the virus in our communities and state. We can do this and support each other with grace, empathy, and kindness through this disruption.
