Why is the HCPSS COVID-19 Dashboard different from the State of Maryland?

The Maryland Department of Health COVID-19 Data Dashboard shows the total number of outbreak-associated cases in schools. The HCPSS COVID-19 Dashboard displays a daily number of cases in schools and is not cumulative.

The HCPSS dashboard also includes cases that are part of the Maryland Department of Health outbreak reporting. These outbreak cases may not impact HCPSS school communities because they often include people who are already in quarantine as an identified close contact and not participating in in-person activities while contagious.
