DuPage County health metrics

  • The DuPage County Health Department publishes health metrics that can be used as part of a school district's considerations when planning for the return to in-person learning. You can view the metrics here: www.dupagehealth.org/ReturnToSchool
     
    It is important to note that these metrics are just one factor that the district considers in determining whether buildings should be open for in-person learning.

    Weekly county new case rates: 128 per 100,000 residents (substantial) down arrow
    Weekly case count trend: down 4.3 percent - consecutive weeks met (minimal) down arrow
    Weekly youth case count trend: up 9.2 percent - consecutive weeks not met (minimal) Up arrow
    Weekly test positivity: 4.2 percent (minimal) down arrow
     

    If one of the metrics is in the higher transmission level, the entire county moves to the more restrictive level. The county can move up at any time, but it takes two consecutive weeks of falling metrics to move down.
