Can someone explain the difference between probable and confirmed. Does a probable become a confirmed?

Confirmed cases are positive results from the PCR test. Probable cases are positive results from an antigen test.

They are sending random emails to the student body asking them to come in for testing.

That's how the process starts. But then it says the pre-screening determines eligibility...just don't know exactly what that means.


I wondered same

maybe some were:

- currently infected
- previously infected
- isolated
- quarantined
- previously tested within a certain time frame

Who knows? Continued lack of good info flow.

I can't remember exactly right now because I'm sleep deprived but it has something to do with previous exposures/positive test.

School district level Covid-19 data is now being provided by TEA on their website - see link to excel sheet at bottom of this page:

https://dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/schools/texas-education-agency/

For CSISD (as of 9/20):

Total enrollment at district (I assume both in person and virtual): 13,531
cases in previous week: 6 student / 3 staff
cumulative case count: 19 student / 6 staff

For BISD (as of 9/20):

Total enrollment at district (I assume both in person and virtual): 15,508
cases in previous week: 9 student / 1 staff
cumulative case count: 18 student / 15 staff

It's wild that we're 5+ weeks in and the numbers are this low. Neither district is reporting on campus vs off campus source of infection numbers (I'm sure hard to trace), but I suspect on campus infection is incredibly low.

It kind of falls in line with the theory that younger people (elementary school aged children) are not vectors of COVID transmission the way older people are. Just from a standpoint that so many are asymptomatic it would make sense to me (less coughing, less sneezing, etc.), but I bet KidDoc could shed more light on that.

Mark Rober made a really cool video demonstrating how easily children can spread germs and stuff:


My apologies to everyone for extending this rabbit trail, but who knows.. maybe this will end up getting removed like some other posts have, and then you won't be forced to scroll past it.

I have 2 elementary aged children so I totally understand how counterintuitive this sounds. I'm mostly referring to studies such as this one:

The kids are just 1) not getting it or 2) a symptomatic.

It would be interesting to test an entire school for antibodies.

Dear CSHS Parents, Guardians, Faculty and Staff,

In keeping with College Station ISD's practices to respond to COVID-19, we are notifying all student families that two students at CSHS were test-confirmed to have COVID-19.

These students were last present at CSHS on Tuesday, September 22. Due to privacy requirements, we will not be releasing the name of the individuals or details that may identify them. All areas of the campus that were heavily used by this individual are sanitized each evening using hospital grade disinfectant.

Along with the local health department, CSISD has investigated the case and has directly contacted any individuals determined to have been in close contact with the infected individuals at school. All students and staff who were in close contact will not be allowed to return to work/school until the end of the 14-day quarantine period from the date of last exposure.
While we do not have reason to believe that those who were not in close contact with the infected individual have reason to be concerned, we ask that you, as always, watch for symptoms of COVID-19.

Screening includes consideration about whether an individual has recently begun experiencing any of the following in a way that is not normal for them.

  • Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 F
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Shaking or exaggerated shivering
  • Significant muscle pain or ache
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea or vomiting

If you or any member of the CSHS community does begin experiencing any of these symptoms in a way that is not normal for them, we encourage you to contact your physician and your school nurse. We encourage anyone in the CSHS community who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19 to please notify our school by contacting the campus at 979-694-5800.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at 979-694-5800 or visit our website at www.csisd.org.

Sincerely,

Tiffany Parkerson
CSHS Principal

BCHD has not yet updated their node, infographic, or their Facebook page today. However, KBTX has an article on today's numbers (but their link to the data takes you the Sept 25 infographic): 32 new confirmed (PCR) cases, 3 probable (antigen) cases, 341 tests, 0 deaths.

If you feel nerdy about stats and want to understand how bad the veracity of the data is, I recommend this site:

I was under the impression that was just a Twitter account. To find they have a website is intriguing - takes some specific motive to go that extra step.

Site is older than the Wuhan... has some pages on other things as well. Seem to be statisticians who are ready to call out bad science on climate change and other things. Don't think they have motive other than the ridiculous numbers that the authorities have foisted upon us. It's a WordPress page.... go to the bottom and you can find prior stuff.
