PPS COVID-19 Weekly Update
The Plymouth Public Schools is committed to transparency as it communicates information pertaining to COVID-19. This dashboard is a source of information for members of our community to remain updated on the most accurate COVID-19 data related to our District.
The data reported below has been confirmed by the State through the Department of Public Health’s MAVEN online information system. In addition; we immediately update our school communities when a positive case has been reported via a letter to individual school stakeholders. Please note, there may be time between the letters sent and the State's reporting of PPS cases in MAVEN.
The dashboard will be updated weekly by 4 p.m. EDT. each Friday. We hope this page is useful to the entire Plymouth community for providing important, up-to-date information about the COVID-19.
