Wasco County Talks Reaching School Metrics

If schools in Wasco County were trying to open tomorrow, they wouldn’t be able to have in-person classes for students, but North Central Public Health District Health Officer Dr. Mimi McDonell says that doesn’t mean the County can’t reach the metrics to reopen schools released by the state on Tuesday in the near future.  State officials are requiring counties have their weekly rate of positive COVID-19 tests under five percent and the new case rate at less than 10 per 100,000 residents for three straight weeks for in-person learning to take place.  McDonell told the Wasco County Commission that the County can get there if people do their part by wearing face coverings and avoiding large gatherings.  In addition to the local metrics, the state’s weekly rate of positive COVID-19 tests needs to be under five percent over three weeks for schools to reopen.
