Statewide metrics were updated today (Tuesday, December 15, 2020) and the update shows increases in Monterey County's metrics. Adjusted case rate is 45.9 and positivity rate is 13.3% . Our healthy equity quartile metric is 18%.  Our ICU availability is 5.7%.


Therefore, since our adjusted case rate is still above 14.0, waivers will not be considered. Eighteen waivers have been granted to Monterey County schools thus far. 


We are still in the purple tier.

Schools may not reopen fully for in-person instruction until the county has been in the Substantial (Red) Tier for two weeks. Local school and health officials may decide to open elementary schools, and school officials may decide to conduct in-person instruction for a limited set of students in small cohorts.

Note on exception: Schools that have already re-opened if the county was in a less restrictive tier do not have to close. However, if a school had not already reopened for in-person instruction, it may not reopen until the county moves back to the Substantial (Red) Tier for 14 days.
