All counties still green in school color-coded safety plan in the pandemic
AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - All counties remain green in the Maine Department of Education’s color-coded system on school safety during the pandemic.
Two weeks ago, Androscoggin, Franklin, Oxford, and York Counties moved from yellow back to a green status.
Education officials say over the last month, the rate of new cases for school staff or students is 25 per 10,000, nearly 70 percent lower than a new case rate of 81 per 10,000 for the general population.
Green indicates it’s safe for in-person learning, yellow suggests a hybrid model, red calls for remote learning.
The next Education Department update will be in two weeks, March 12.
