The positivity rate is now at 7.6% 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 146.7. 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 Stearns County school district positivity rates of 1 being the highest rate, Melrose is currently at number 4.
As you can see below, our numbers remain low within our buildings. The positivity rate continues to climb in the state and the county. Although overall numbers in the US are starting to decline, positivity rates continue to increase in Minnesota. The occupancy rate in local and regional hospitals numbers continues to be high. We are not out of the woods yet but there is hope on the horizon that numbers will begin to plateau soon.
Our numbers from last week:
