List of Arizona Counties That Have Met 2 and 3 School Virus Benchmarks For In-Class Learning

According to the Arizona Department of Health Services dashboard, Arizona counties are making progress in the goal of meeting coronavirus benchmarks recommended for safe return to school in-person learning.

Maricopa County has met two of three coronavirus benchmarks recommended for safely starting in-person learning for a third straight week.

Maricopa County met the benchmarks for a decline in cases and hospital visits, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services.

The one important benchmark not met in the Phoenix area was the positivity rate of 7% or less. The positivity rate was 9.4%.

The health agency recommends the benchmarks be at moderate or minimal community spread levels for at least two weeks to allow hybrid learning.

The metrics set are guidelines, not requirements, and were produced in a collaborative effort between state health and education leaders.

Each of the 15 counties met at least one metric.
