Respiratory Outbreaks in Minnesota K-12 Schools
Beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, Minnesota K-12 schools report an outbreak to MDH when 10% of their student population is absent from school on a given day with respiratory illness symptoms or a respiratory illness diagnosis such as COVID-19, influenza, or RSV. While individual COVID-19 cases are no longer tracked by schools, the combined reporting for multiple respiratory illnesses under one threshold will allow MDH to monitor overall respiratory illness trends in school settings.
- Data on K-12 schools reporting respiratory outbreaks for the 2023-2024 school year can be found in the Weekly Influenza & Respiratory Activity: Statistics.
