SDMA Weekly COVID Update - 8/19/2020
Posted on 08/20/2020

Hello SDMA Families and Staff.

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 are now 147 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Dunn County (up from 131 last week) and 6,158 negative test results (up from 5,158 last week).  There were 35 newly confirmed cases in the past two weeks (up from 33 last week) which still results in a MODERATELY HIGH burden of 78.2 new cases per 100,000 people in Dunn County (up from 73.7 last week).  The trend for the past two weeks in Dunn County is still 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.

As an added bonus this week, please check out this graphic from the Dunn County Community Recovery Team (DCCRT).  Please join the School District of the Menomonie Area (and the other members of the DCCRT involved in this campaign) by posting this sign and being sure to Wash Up, Back Up, and Mask Up.

Thank you.
