This dashboard shows the 14-day COVID-19 positive case count from 9/3/21 – 9/17/21. Positive cases remain on the dashboard for 14-days. Positive individuals may return to school after a 10-day isolation period so long as they are symptom free.
If your student tests positive COVID-19, please contact the Salt Lake County Health Department (SLCoHD) at 385-468-4222 immediately. Your student may not come to school if they have tested positive. You will be contacted by the SLCoHD who will be responsible for confirming the isolation period and return to school dates for positive cases.
Families of students exposed to a positive case at school will receive an email from the school letting them know of their student’s exposure and quarantine options. Exposure is defined as closer than six feet for more than 15 minutes to a positive individual where masks were not worn by both individuals.
In the event a school has 30 positive students, the school will conduct a Test to Stay event which will be done by the SLCoHD.

The Utah Department of Health has announced they will not be producing the COVID-19 school manual for the 2021-2022 school year but instead a disease plan. MCSD is currently working with the Salt Lake County Health Department on recommended protocols. This has led to a delay in finalizing our protocols. We apologize for this delay and are committed to getting our information out to families as soon as possible.
To help ensure a safe, in-person learning and social environment, the Salt Lake County Health Department (SLCoHD) strongly recommends that everyone eligible (currently people 12 years and older) be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the school year begins. For families with children too young to be vaccinated yet, it is especially important that everyone eligible around them is vaccinated.
Click here for a PDF from SLCoHD with factual information about the COVID vaccine, and information about how to receive it. If you have questions about how to get vaccinated, please contact SLCoHD at 385-468-7468 or visit ThisIsOurShot.com.
MCSD can not enforce its own mask mandate for the 2021-2022 school year. However, students and staff are more than welcome to wear them. We simply ask that everyone respect personal decisions with regard to face coverings.
In the May 2021 special session, the Utah State Legislature passed HB 1007 which eliminates a school district’s power to enforce its own mask mandate for the upcoming school year. Specifically, the bill prohibits a face-covering requirement to participate in or attend instruction, activities, or in any other place on the school campus or facilities in the system of public education after the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
HB 1007 does allow for a state or local health department to act under applicable law to contain the spread of an infectious disease. Murray City School District will follow any orders from state or local health officials regarding face coverings.
MCSD is waiting on an update to the COVID-19 School Manual from the Utah Department of Health. In the event the COVID-19 school manual is not updated by 7.29.21, we will publish protocols that we as a district are able to establish.
