Decatur, GA — Parents at Fifth Avenue Upper Elementary School received a notification on Feb. 2 that someone at the school tested positive for COVID-19.

That, coupled with an additional case at Talley Street Upper Elementary, brings the number of COVID-19 cases reported by CSD up to at least 16, so far, since schools reopened to pre-k through fifth grade students on Jan. 19.

Earlier today, Decaturish published an article about new case at Clairemont Elementary, and it was initially unclear whether that case involved a student or a staff member. That case hasn’t been uploaded to the CSD COVID-19 reporting dashboard. Likewise, the F.AVE case also has not been reported on the district’s website, but was confirmed via the email sent to parents. There’s a lag between the notifications to parents and the data appearing on the district’s COVID-19 dashboard. A district spokesperson said Tuesday afternoon that the case at Clairemont Elementary involved a student and the case at F.AVE involves a staff member.

Talley Street Upper Elementary has reported five cases, the most of any school in the district. About 75 people have had to quarantine due to exposures there, CSD records show.

Here are the cases that have been uploaded to the school district’s COVID-19 reporting dashboard as of Feb. 2.
