Positive COVID-19 Case Details

The information below represents COVID-19 within Rio Rancho Public Schools as confirmed by the NM Department of Health, and any subsequent quarantines. 

The chart below represents cases within Rio Rancho Public Schools for the regular 2021-2022 School Year. For older data related to the positive cases, click on a link below:

*NOTE: Cases are reported individually (one per line). Only cases for students, contractors and employees who were on an RRPS campus during their infectious period are reported per the NM Public Education Department. This web page is updated Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Test to Stay Program

Per the New Mexico Public Education Department, public schools must create a modified quarantine program. With the new program, students and staff members will be offered the option to “test to stay," rather than having to quarantine at home for 10 days when they are identified as a close contact with a COVID-19 positive individual. This means that students and staff members identified as close contacts may remain at school as long as they take a COVID-19 test on day 1, day 3, and day 5, and receive negative results. This only applies to those who have been exposed at school. Exposure in the household setting does not qualify for the Test to Stay Program. The Rio Rancho Public Schools Test to Stay Program will go into effect starting Dec. 6, 2021. Additional details will be sent to all RRPS families once they are finalized.

Because of the new Test to Stay Program, we will no longer be reporting the number of Quarantines associated with positive cases on this page. Instead, starting with December 2021 cases, we will report the number of Close Contacts associated with each positive case. Close Contacts, under the Test to Stay Program, are not quarantine from school.
