COVID-19 Resources & Information
CCDS has a NEW dedicated email for all COVID-19 related questions. Please email email@example.com for general COVID-19 questions, or to report a COVID-19 exposure.
Daily Wellness Checks Begin at Home
Campus health and wellness begins at home. Butte County Public Health (BCPH) developed guidelines to assist parents in determining when students should be kept home. Parents should perform a wellness check daily before leaving for school.
Temperatures must be under 100.4 without the use of fever reducing medication (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.) for 24 hours prior to attending school.
Temperature checks should be performed daily.
Screen your child daily for potential COVID-19 symptoms or exposures utilizing the student symptom decision tree.

CCDS COVID-19 Dashboard
All confirmed positive COVID-19 incidents related to Chico Country Day School and offices will be posted to this page. For the purposes of this dashboard, CCDS is distinguishing between school-based cases and community-based cases, with two separate columns for every month in the table below:
"S.B." School-Based cases:
a) School-based cases will potentially impact individuals' health and wellness at our school or office because there may be site-related exposure OR a positive case was on campus during an infectious period
b) A school-based case MAY cause classroom closure or other precautionary measures
c) We will follow Butte County Office of Education and BCPH Guidelines around isolating and notifying close contacts, as needed
- A school-based case MAY cause classroom closure or other precautionary measures
- We will follow Butte County Office of Education and BCPH Guidelines around isolating and notifying close contacts, as needed
Known "C.B." Community-Based cases:
- Community-based cases DO NOT impact individuals' health and wellness at our school or office because no one at the site was in close contact with the positive individual during the infectious period. Per the CDC definition, this means no one at the site was within 6 feet of the infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient was isolated
- This dashboard will include all known community-based cases related to CCDS; this dashboard may not reflect all community-based cases involving our staff and students because CCDS relies on notification from public health or self-reporting from staff or families
- We will follow the BCPH Guidelines around isolating the positive case, as needed
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How often is the Dashboard updated?
Answer: The Dashboard is updated at least every 5-7 days and when we are notified of confirmed cases by the public health department. We set Fridays as an update day.
Question: I received a notification from my school about a case. Why isn't it on the dashboard yet?
Answer: CCDS does not wait to notify close contacts upon initial report of a positive case. However, we do wait for official confirmation from the public health department before listing the case on this dashboard. This could result in a delay of cases appearing on this dashboard or a discrepancy between the number of notifications received and actual number of confirmed cases (when the case is not confirmed positive by public health).
Question: Who receives notification if there is a positive case?
Answer: Three different types of notifications go out: one to close contacts with any relevant quarantine or testing requirements or recommendations, one to the classroom or cohort, and one to the larger school community.
