The Atlanta Journal Constitution is posting a daily data chart of the number of students and staff who are identified as being infected and the number of students and staff directed to quarantine and get tested. That data is being updated and maintained by the Cherokee School System.

The data is not updated until all parents are notified and it obviously does not included data that is not reported by students.

The range of grade levels and the number of schools is noteworthy.
