Weekly Risk Level Status Check: Week of September 8

The district’s executive leadership team, School Board President, and lead school nurse are meeting weekly with representatives from Fargo Cass Public Health and Essentia Health to discuss COVID-19 data and trends specific to Cass County. This information will be used to make any warranted adjustments to the district’s learning model and safety protocols.

The following information was provided in the September 8 session:

  1. Data & Trends from FCPH
    1. 14-Day Rolling Average of New Cases = 41.29/day in Cass County; 260.65/day across the state. These increases are a direct reflection of increased testing across the state and in Cass County specifically, as well as the return of college students to their campuses as well as to their off-campus jobs.
    2. % Positivity Rate = 4.91% in Cass and 5.45% across the state
    3. The hospitalization rate is holding steady
    4. Our 14-day case rate per 10,000 people in Cass County is 32 

Based on this information, there are no proposed adjustments and the district’s status will remain as green hybrid.
