In partnership with our school districts, the Department of Public Health is assembling a set of data points for districts and private schools to access as they work toward a possible return to in-school instruction. By the end of this week, DPH anticipates to share the following points of data with all schools:
The latest case data from the Department of Public Health indicates the following:
While the rate of new cases among 15-19-year-olds has risen sharply over the past two months, the rate of new cases among younger children has remained relatively stable. For that reason, there is anticipation that there may be adjusted recommendations for a return to in-person learning among younger students first. At this time, there is no date for which those changes may be announced and it will be some time before recommendations will be reviewed for the return of in person classes for high school students.
Again, testing is available and encouraged. Anyone with regular contact with people outside the household should get tested. Please continue to maintain social distancing, wear masks and practice hand-washing. Testing is by appointment only, can be made here and at no cost.
In partnership with St. Louis County Libraries, pop-up testing will occur at the following branches during the month of September. Testing is by appointment only and can be made online here. All pop-up testing locations are between the hours of 8:00 am and noon. A full schedule is available online at www.slcl.org/events.
