Today, Lane County became one of 3 counties in Oregon to move into the “RED” Category in regards to the CDC “community level” chart. As a reminder, this data can be found on the right hand side of this page, on the District website at this link: https://www.fernridge.k12.or.us/2020-school-year/
When a county moves to red, two of their recommendations are as follows:
- Wear a mask indoors in public
- Additional precautions may be needed for people at high risk for severe illness.
Because these are currently recommendations, and not requirements, at this time the district is simply putting out the information, and recommending folks wear masks indoors and that individuals consider further precautions based on your personal circumstances.
Tonight is graduation in the EHS gym. Masks are recommended, but not required. For our final week of school, absent any changes in the requirements, or significant changes to the COVID environment, I would expect this to remain unchanged.
