PA COVID19 Early Warning Monitoring System

The PA COVID19 Early Warning Monitoring System helps schools determine what instructional model to use (in-person, hybrid, virtual) and when to close for cleaning due to COVID19 infections.

The threshold for which instructional model to use is determined by two COVID19 indicators of community spread:
        1.) Incidence Rate - the number of people in Beaver County who have tested positive for COVID19 per
             100,000 residents in the last 7-days.
        2.) Percent Positivity - the percent of people in Beaver County who have tested positive for COVID19 in the
             last 7-days.  

Click here to review these two indicators for the past 7-days and their relationship to our decision to use a hybrid or full-virtual instructional model.  Once you see the spreadsheet that is linked, click on the second tab to review the recommendations for how many COVID19 infections of students or staff may occur before a complete school or district closure is recommended.
