COVID-19 Metrics

The Board of Education approved the following county metrics and ratings to consider beginning the hybrid in-person model, for which the District is prepared to implement:

— Positivity Rate – Minimal – Less than or equal to 5%
— New Case Rate Per 100,000 – Moderate – Less than or equal to 100
— New Youth Case Increase – Minimal – Less than or equal to 10%
— New Case Increase – Moderate – Less than or equal to 20%

The Board determined that if Sangamon County meets the metrics and ratings listed above for two concurrent weeks, the District could commence the hybrid model.

The Illinois Department of Health reports the weekly metrics each Friday. The information can be found at dph.illinois.gov/countyschool (select Sangamon from the drop down menu).
