Trinity COVID-19 Dashboard
Updated May 3, 2021
We update this dashboard each Monday. In accordance with Texas Education Agency (TEA) and Travis County Health Department guidelines, we also email our community whenever we have a new lab-confirmed COVID-19 case on our campus. All identifying information is kept strictly confidential. Individuals who may have been exposed will be contacted directly.
Confirmed Positive Cases
(Apr. 26 – May 2)
Report a Confirmed or Possible Exposure
Please notify us if someone in your household is showing symptoms, has tested positive, or has had close contact with someone infected with COVID-19. The CDC defines "close contact" as 15 minutes or more within 6 feet of an infected individual with or without a mask over a 24 hour period. Help us prevent community spread! Your identifying information will be kept strictly confidential.
Quarantine vs. Isolation
You were around someone with COVID-19 but don't have symptoms.
Quarantine keeps you away from others if you were in "close contact" with a person infected with COVID-19. The CDC defines "close contact" as 15 minutes or more within 6 ft. of an infected individual with or without a mask over a 24 hour period. If you were possibly exposed but don't have symptoms, check your temperature twice a day, watch for symptoms, and stay away from people at higher risk. The quarantine can end after 10 days from exposure without testing if no symptoms have been observed. The quarantine can end after 7 days from exposure if an individual A) tests negative 5 days or longer after exposure and B) no symptoms have been observed.
You have symptoms and/or tested positive for COVID-19.
Isolation keeps you away from others — even in your own home — if you are sick and/or have tested positive for COVID-19. If you live with others, stay in a specific area away from other people or pets. Use a separate bathroom if available. If you have symptoms, isolation can end after 10 days since symptoms first appeared if A) at least 24 hours with no fever (without fever-reducing medication) and B) symptoms have improved. If no symptoms, isolation can end 10 days after your positive test.
Continually Adjusting the Dimmer Switch
We are thankful for your partnership this year as we have moved through Trinity’s COVID plans. You, your children, and our faculty and staff have successfully navigated 100% distance learning, a hybrid model, and in-person learning with new health and safety protocols. We averaged 85-90% of our students and teachers at school every day since we all returned to campus together October 26. Students are thriving as they take on new academic challenges and find joy in new learning opportunities. We’ve certainly learned lessons along the way, and our plan has been working.
Our protocols have been developed in partnership with our medical task force and align with CDC guidelines. While the 14-day quarantine after direct exposure is still the gold standard, the following options to shorten a quarantine are acceptable alternatives:
Quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing and if no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring.
Quarantine can end after Day 7 if an individual tests negative after Day 5 and if no symptoms were reported during daily monitoring.
Leadership Team members and faculty volunteers comprise three planning task forces.

Specific decisions and plans continue to evolve as more information and updated public health guidelines are issued.
