SDMA Weekly COVID Update

SDMA Weekly COVID Update
Posted on 07/29/2020

Hello SDMA Families.

This is the type of message that you can expect to receive from me each week when the new COVID-19 numbers come out on Wednesdays.............

The data listed on the Dunn County Dashboard was updated today.  You can see that there is now a total of 95 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Dunn County and 5,040 negative test results.  There were 39 newly confirmed cases in the past two weeks which results in a MODERATELY HIGH burden of 87 new cases per 100,000 people in Dunn County.  The trend for the past two weeks in Dunn County is level ( <-->).

If school was in session right now, this data report would likely result in the SDMA continuing with the In-Person Learning Environment as noted on the 2020-2021 SDMA Instructional Model Graphic where all grade levels would be allowed to have in-person instruction with full enrollment. If the BURDEN level in Dunn County increases to HIGH and the TREND level was increasing, additional mitigation measures (like moving to the Blended Learning Environment) would probably be necessary.

Also, here is a quick reminder of the SDMA Virtual Q&A Session offered for families tonight at 7:00 pm. The link for joining the meeting is: .

Thank you.
