This weekly update is a guide to assist families and the community to understand the Flagstaff Unified School District’s overall risk level for COVID-19. FUSD will continue to post updates regularly on Fridays to www.fusd1.org/healthmetrics.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidance which included new metrics to determine COVID-19 Community Levels based on three pieces of data: new COVID-19 hospitalizations, hospital capacity, and new COVID-19 cases. Categories for COVID-19 Community Levels have changed to just three levels: Low (Green), Medium (Yellow), and High (Orange).
