As Minnesota school districts plan for the 2020-21 school year, so are Minnesota families.
On July 30, Governor Tim Walz signed Executive Order 20-82 to implement Minnesota’s Safe Learning Plan for the 2020-21 School Year. Families can learn more about what the plan means for them here.
School districts must adhere to the health requirements and recommendations in MDH 2020-21 Planning Guidance for Schools and should consult MDE 2020-21 Planning Guidance for Minnesota Public Schools as plans for each scenario are developed.
Data for K-12 Schools: 14-day COVID-19 Case Rate by County (PDF) includes data that can be used by schools in making decisions about their safe learning model. It shows the number of cases by county of residence in Minnesota over 14 days, per 10,000 people by the date of specimen collection (when a person was tested).
