Every Monday, Walla Walla Public Schools will post the Walla Walla Department of Community Health's COVID-19 Activity Report. This report, provided weekly to regional school districts, is what the Walla Walla Board of Directors has used to guide school reopening. This week's report reveals improvement in local case counts, with 245 combined cases between Walla Walla and College Place over a 2-week period. This is the lowest 2-week count in over two months. Click here for the report.
According to the district's board-approved Reopening Plan, a combined Walla Walla and College Place jurisdictional case count must be below 200 cases to transition middle school students back to campus. High school students can return when the combined cases counts dip below 115. Both of these identified thresholds directly align with state health official guidance.
