The St. Vrain Val­ley School Dis­trict launched its own coro­n­avirus dash­board Thurs­day as Boul­der County re­ported an ad­di­tional death tied to the virus and 31 new cases.

Also Thurs­day, the Univer­sity of Colorado Boul­der’s dash­board showed seven stu­dents have been sus­pended over health or­der vi­o­la­tions since Aug. 17 and tal­lied seven ad­di­tional coro­n­avirus cases. The school dis­trict’s dash­board tracks cases per school, up­dated week­days by 8:30 a.m. To date, 31 cases have been con­firmed within the dis­trict, data shows.

Data is di­vided into two col­umns: cases con­firmed be­fore Mon­day and cases con­firmed af­ter

Mon­day, and whether the cases re­ported were found in stu­dents or staff.

The dash­board does not dis­tin­guish be­tween stu­dents who live in Boul­der County and stu­dents who live in Weld County. Stu­dents or staff who test pos­i­tive and re­side in Boul­der County are in­cluded in the county’s numbers, Boul­der County Pub­lic Health spokes­woman Chana Gous­setis said Thurs­day.

Since Mon­day, one stu­dent has tested pos­i­tive at Erie High School.

The dash­board shows the fol­low­ing pos­i­tive re­sults prior to Mon­day: one stu­dent at Burling­ton El­e­men­tary School in Long­mont, two staff at Erie El­e­men­tary School, four stu­dents at In­dian Peaks El­e­men­tary School in Long­mont, two stu­dents at Launched Vir­tual Academy, two staff at Main Street School in Long­mont, four stu­dents at Moun­tain View El­e­men­tary School in Long­mont, two stu­dents at Ni­wot High School, one staff mem­ber at Northridge El­e­men­tary School in Long­mont, one staff mem­ber at San­born El­e­men­tary School in Long­mont, one stu­dent at Sil­ver Creek High School in Long­mont, two stu­dents at Sun­set Mid­dle School in Long­mont, and four stu­dents at Thunder Val­ley PK-8 in Fred­er­ick. The dash­board lists one staff mem­ber of mul­ti­ple schools and three staff mem­bers in cen­tral ad­min­is­tra­tion who tested pos­i­tive.

The dash­board does not in­clude in­for­ma­tion on Apex Home School En­rich­ment Pro­gram, Aspen Ridge Prepara­tory School, Car­bon Val­ley Academy, Flagstaff Char­ter Academy, Imag­ine Char­ter, St. Vrain Com­mu­nity Montes­sori School or Twin Peaks Char­ter Academy.

CU Boul­der’s dash­board also shows 94 on-cam­pus tests and 718 screen­ing tests were per­formed Wed­nes­day. There are 23 iso­la­tion spa­ces in use, or 4%.

Since Aug. 24, the first day of classes, there have been 1,097 pos­i­tive re­sults at CU Boul­der from 5,121 tests, data shows.

In ad­di­tion to the seven sus­pen­sions, the dash­board shows 324 in­di­vid­u­als have re­quired “ed­u­ca­tional in­ter­ven­tions” and 58 in­di­vid­u­als were put on pro­ba­tion since Aug. 17.

This week there are 34 stu­dents ac­tively not al­lowed on cam­pus “pend­ing ad­ju­di­ca­tion of their con­duct hear­ing,” the dash­board shows, and 10 stu­dents this week are not al­lowed to at­tend any classes, re­mote or in per­son, pend­ing ad­ju­di­ca­tion of their con­duct hear­ing.

CU Boul­der will re­sume some in-per­son classes next week, of­fi­cials an­nounced Wed­nes­day, fol­low­ing the steady de­crease in cases among stu­dents.

The county’s 31 ad­di­tional cases brings the to­tal to 4,748 cases, and of those, 215 have been hos­pi­tal­ized. There are 219 dis­ease in­ves­ti­ga­tions in progress.

The county’s death toll is at 81 fol­low­ing the ad­di­tional death re­ported Thurs­day. The in­di­vid­ual was 43 years old and died Oct. 1, Gous­setis said. No other de­tails about the per­son were avail­able.

County data up­dated Thurs­day shows there are 146.2 new cases per 100,000 in the last 14 days. This met­ric is used by the state health depart­ment to mon­i­tor the spread of the virus in the county. Last week, Boul­der County fell into the “red” zone of new cases with more than 350 per 100,000 in the two-week span. The county shifted back to the “yel­low” zone

Mon­day, re­port­ing 232.4 new cases per 100,000 in the two-week span.

To date, 74,354 COVID19 tests have been ad­min­is­tered in the county, with 4.1% re­turn­ing pos­i­tive. The cur­rent five-day av­er­age per­cent of pos­i­tive tests is 2. The five-day av­er­age of new daily cases Thurs­day is 17.2. One week ago, the five-day av­er­age was 41.8.

On Tues­day, seven of the re­ported 26 county cases are res­i­dents af­fil­i­ated with CU Boul­der and on Thurs­day seven of the 25 cases are from res­i­dents af­fil­i­ated with CU Boul­der, county data shows.

Data up­dated Thurs­day shows that, of the county’s cases, 2,752 have been re­ported in Boul­der and 969 have been re­ported in Long­mont. There have been 277 cases in Lafayette, 193 in Louisville, 64 in Su­pe­rior, 62 in Erie, eight in Lyons, six in Ned­er­land and 267 in un­in­cor­po­rated Boul­der County. Cases have been con­firmed in seven peo­ple ex­pe­ri­enc­ing home­less­ness.

The rate of in­fec­tion for Boul­der res­i­dents is 2,585.1 per 100,000 peo­ple, data shows. In Long­mont, the rate of in­fec­tion is 1,009.4 per 100,000. In Lafayette, the rate is 956.8; in Louisville, the rate is 911.2; in Lyons, the rate is 387.2; in Erie, the rate is 551.1; in Su­pe­rior, the rate is 478.8; and in un­in­cor­po­rated Boul­der County, the rate is 600.7 per 100,000.

Statewide, there have been 75,785 pos­i­tive or prob­a­ble cases. There have been 2,095 deaths among the cases, and of those, there have been 1,997 deaths be­cause of the coro­n­avirus. There have been 7,834 peo­ple hos­pi­tal­ized. Of Colorado’s roughly 5.7 mil­lion pop­u­la­tion, 984,996 peo­ple have been tested for the virus.
