The positivity rate is now at 6.3% in the State of Minnesota as communicated to us at the Stearns County Public Health Zoom conference last week. In the latest comparable numbers to last year's metrics, we are now at 53. Another way to look at this as we did last year was to rank our positivity rate in the county. As reported last Thursday in a ranking of 1 being the highest rate, Melrose is currently at number 8.
Also reported last week, many schools are now considering some type of masking mandate to slow down the transmission of the virus. Following all of the arrowed items below will slow down the virus but it will not stop it completely.
Here are the positivity rates for the first four weeks as reported at 1 p.m. on 9/27/21. As more test results come in from last week these numbers may increase.
If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me or any of the building principals.
