COVID-19 Trends

Updated: April 9, 2021

We continue to monitor COVID activity data published by Public Health - Seattle & King County (PHSKC). 

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) decision-making tool indicates when COVID activity rates are at an appropriate level to transition to in-person learning and activities. When community rates are greater than 350 per 100,000 residents, DOH recommends in-person learning for our youngest learners (Pre-K through grade 5) and students with the highest needs with safety protocols in place. These conditions include small groups of 15 or fewer students and social distancing.
