COVID-19 Metrics Tracker

Eugene School District 4J students are learning online at the start of the 2020–21 school year. Comprehensive distance learning will continue at least through winter break. The district plans to have students return to school buildings in a hybrid model, blending on-site and online learning in alternating cohorts, in January or later, when public health conditions allow.

Oregon has established minimum public health requirements that must be met before a school district can decide to resume on-site learning, in full compliance with the health and safety measures required in the state guidance for Ready Schools, Safe Learners.

To allow schools to begin providing limited, targeted in-person instruction while most students are learning online:

  • No new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the past 14 days among school staff or students (regardless of whether they have been on site at school).

To allow schools to resume on-site learning for grades K–3:

  • No new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the past 14 days among school staff or students (regardless of whether they have been on site at school).

     –  AND for the previous 3 weeks in a row:

  • ≤ 30 new positive cases per 100,000 population in Lane County
  • ≤ 5% positive results in COVID-19 tests in Lane County

To allow schools to resume on-site learning for all grades in a hybrid model:

For the previous 3 weeks in a row:

  • ≤ 10 new positive cases per 100,000 population in Lane County
  • ≤ 5% positive results in COVID-19 tests in Lane County
  • ≤ 5% positive results in COVID-19 tests in in Oregon

Metrics have also been established for when schools must return to distance learning.
