New rules for Marion County (Indianapolis) schools to focus on positivity rates to limit
Instead of closing all of the county’s schools at once, the new rules will look at infection rates in individual buildings.
1. Schools with an infection rate at or below 75% of the county’s can continue operating in person.
(Marion County’s latest seven-day average positivity rate was 16.3%)
2. The health department will work with schools that are between 75% and 100% of the county’s rate to prevent
3. Schools with an infection rate above that in the county will have to work with the health department to decrease
their case rate. Depending upon what is happening specifically at the school contributing to the cases, and its
impact on the students and staff, will determine whether that school has to close.
4. Individual school districts will decide whether to operatie in-person school.
The policy change allows high school students to return to in-person instruction full-time.
