Reopening Metrics

  • The York County School Division will make decisions on the level of in-person instruction based on the status of two main metrics. The first is the level of community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) and the second is the ability to deliver in-person instruction with operational integrity.

    The links on the left side provide details regarding the charts provided below. These charts will be updated each Monday beginning the week of August 31. While the charts are updated weekly based on Virginia Department of Health data, the health department evaluates a minimum of two weeks data before determining if there is a reliable trend. The division and the health department track not only York County transmission rates, but also those in the larger peninsula area and the eastern region, as more than 50% of division staff live in those areas.

    While decreasing case trends will help support a move towards in-person instruction, the charts should not be interpreted to indicate that a two-week trend would immediately prompt a change in instructional status. Each level of transmission (lowest, lower, moderate, higher, and highest) represent a range of transmission rates.

Level of School Impact

  • Data as of February 18, 2021

    Schools open for in-person instruction should evaluate the level of impact that COVID-19 transmission has had within their specific school. This assessment factors in the ability to maintain adequate staff for facility operations, transportation, teaching, and administrative functions.
