Rice County 14 - Day Case Rate per 10,000 People 

The Office of the Governor along with experts from the Minnesota Departments of Education and Health have developed a Safe Learning Plan for the 2020-21 School Year. At this point in the pandemic, each school is to consider various pieces of data, including the county’s 14-day case rate to determine which learning plan is best for their population. The governor's office publishes a weekly report with the 14-day case rate by county for use by school districts and it can be accessed here. Rice County Public Health is calculating the 14-day case rate using more recent data. This rate, because it is more recent, is preliminary and may change as case and contact investigations continue.
