What are the significant changes from the previous guidance?

The guidance now includes:

  • Within the Measures of Community Transmission and Recommended Learning Modes chart an “incidence rate category” – which is the number of cases per 100,000 over the prior two weeks.
  • We make clear that percent positive is one of the two measures that make up the gating criteria. It is calculated differently to better align with the calculation method the state uses.
  • A hybrid option for middle and high school was expanded, if schools can take appropriate safety precautions.
  • A change in the colors of the categories to be more consistent with the state.
