CHW release – Coos Health & Wellness feels that keeping Coos County open and creating a safe environment for our children to return to in-person instruction at school are two very important goals. The State has set specific data points for both the counties and the State to reach before schools may re-open. Each week we will post the newest data on our social media and include the data in the below graphic. For all schools to return to in-person instruction the following metrics must be met 3 weeks in a row: • Coos County Case Rate ≤10 cases per 100,000 population. • Test positivity ≤5% in the preceding 7 days. • State Metric of test positivity ≤5% in the preceding 7 days. There is an exception for students in Kindergarten to 3rd grade to return to in-person instruction if the following metrics have been met 3 weeks in a row: • Coos County test positivity is ≤5% in the preceding 7 days. • Coos County case rate is ≤30 cases per 100,000 population. It is up to us, as a community, to be the best public health stewards we can be.
