COVID-19 Activity Dashboard
With in-person learning activities taking place in schools, Richland School District wants everyone in the community to be aware of confirmed COVID-19 exposure among students and staff.
This dashboard will be updated each school day by 4:30 p.m. and provides confirmed positive COVID-19 cases among enrolled students and staff who have been in a school or other district facility when they were infectious.

RSD COVID-19 Notification Protocols
Beginning Monday, Sept. 13, a COVID-19 Update email notification will be sent from the district to the parents/guardians and staff of each school with one or more new positive on-site cases by 4:30 p.m. daily. This message will:
- link to the COVID-19 Activity Dashboard updated each school day
- include any student activity or program cancelations resulting from COVID-19 conditions
- include updates from the state or local officials on COVID-19 safety measures and requirements
- link to resources for COVID-19 testing, vaccination and more.
Individual schools will continue to send families notifications if their child is determined to be a close contact to a positive case and if their teacher must quarantine as a result of contracting COVID-19 or being a close contact.
Per Benton-Franklin Health District (BFHD), a COVID-19 outbreak occurs in a school when there are two or more laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases among students or staff with onsets within a 14-day period, who are epidemiologically linked, do not share a household, and were not identified as close contacts of each other in another setting during standard case investigation or contact tracing.
The district will work closely with BFHD to determine if a classroom or building closure is recommended.
