Health Metrics and On-Site Learning

Determining the safest learning environment for students, requires a thorough evaluation of data from the state and local health departments and guidance from the Virginia Department of Education. The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) uses a number of indicators including CDC metrics to determine community spread of COVID-19 and the risk of transmission in schools. WJCC Schools uses data for Williamsburg, James City County, and the larger Peninsula to determine movement between Paths for Learning and the number of students in school buildings.

Key Mitigation Strategies Implemented at Schools

WJCC Schools has adopted the following mitigation measures. Our ability to implement them at every school, every day will impact the number of students we are able to bring on site for learning.

  • Consistent and correct use of masks
  • Social distancing to the largest extent possible
  • Hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Contact tracing in collaboration with local health department

Risk of Transmission in Schools

Lowest RiskLower RiskModerate RiskHigher RiskHighest Risk
  • COVID Positive – only includes individuals with a lab-confirmed positive test.
  • Case Burden – the total number of cases per 100,000 people
  • Positivity Rate – the percentage of all coronavirus tests performed that are actually positive

Current as of October 24, 2020

The Peninsula Health District is currently at a Higher transmission level.

Core Indicators, James City County


Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 14 days*


Percentage of RT-PCR tests that are positive during the last 14 days**

Core Indicators, Williamsburg City

Percentage of RT-PCR tests that are positive during the last 14 days**

*Total number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 14 days is calculated by adding the number of new cases reported in the locality (city or county) in the last 14 days, dividing by the population of that locality, and multiplying by 100,000. This indicator differs from the daily case incidence rate per 100,000 used in the Daily Region Metrics dashboard because it captures the case incidence for 14 days rather than just one day.

**Percentage of RT-PCR tests in the locality that are positive during the last 14 days is calculated by dividing the number of positive tests over the last 14 days by the the total number of tests conducted over the last 14 days and multiplying by 100. Testing data are provided at the locality level with the exception of Covington, Emporia, Lexington, and Manassas Park. Based on how laboratory results are reported, data from these small jurisdictions are not trustworthy on their own. The surrounding counties of Alleghany, Greensville, Rockbridge, and Prince William are displayed instead.
