2021-2022 COVID-19 Dashboard

At the Ephrata Area School District, we are hoping to provide in-person instruction for as long as possible.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health recommends schools consider a shift to online learning for all students when a specified number of COVID+ cases is reached based on a Rolling 14-Day Count. For the 2021-2022 school year, the numbers that would prompt a school to be considered for a closure of up to 14 days is based on a five (5) percent calculation of the number of individuals (students and staff) who attend that building each day. If a building reaches a three (3) percent level within the 14-Day Rolling Count, the building will temporarily have a temporary mask requirement for a 2-3 week period or until cases drop below the three (3) percent count.
