Community Health Indicators

​​​​​​​​​​Over the past few months, Rockwood has continued our regular collaboration with superin​tendents, medical professionals, and healthcare professionals. These indicators are a starting point, and one of the many factors we may consider in the health of our own school community. As always, the driving force behind any decision-making ​is the safety and well-being of students, staff and scho​ol communities.

Please know that the data reflect information provided by St. Louis County Department of Public Health, as well as information compiled by EducationPlus; it may be subject to change if we get updates from these community organizations​.​

 Regional Transmission Rate

​​Viral transmission represents the average number of people that one person with COVID-19 is likely to infect in a population without any immunity or any interventions. The risk is less to individuals when community transmission rates ar​e low.​​

Target of moving to 1.00 or less. Above 1.0 means increasing the spread, and under 1.0 means reducing the spread of the virus.​​​​

 Seven-Day Average of New Daily Case Rates

​A seven-day moving average of new daily cases per 100,000 is used to account for fluctuations that may occur in the data, such as fewer cases being reported on weekends. The intent is to give a more representative view of the ongoing COVID-19 new case rate.

​Rate of Cases by Age Group

Between 10/27 and 11/09, new COVID-19 diagnoses increased across all age groups. In relative terms, the largest increase was reported among people aged 80 years and older (+229 percent), which is extremely worrisome given the increased risk for poor outcomes among this age group. Currently, the average rate of new diagnoses is highest among 20–29 year-olds (88.4 cases per 100,000 per day), followed by people aged 80 years and older (78.7 cases per 100,000 per day). Average daily diagnoses are currently lowest among children aged 0–9 years (20.2 cases per 100,000 per day), though this may partly reflect a relatively low rate of testing among this age group.​
