Metrics for Reopening

In order for Oregon schools to be able to open for in-person instruction, the state has provided the following guidelines that must be met for 3 weeks in a row:

For 4th-12th grade to reopen in person:

  • 10 or fewer new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 Deschutes County residents
  • County-wide 5% or less positive tests
  • State-wide 5% or less positive test rate

For K-3rd grade to open in-person:

  • 30 or fewer COVID-19 cases per 100,000 Deschutes County residents
  • County-wide 5% or less positive tests

Pre-K is regulated by the Early Childhood Division and is not subject to the metrics above.

The state-wide positivity rate and Deschutes County cases per 100K can be found here.
