Re: Continued State Designation of Waldo County, “Yellow Status”

On October 30, 2020, the Maine CDC and Maine DOE issued a status update and has continued to categorize Waldo County as yellow.  A yellow category suggests the county has an elevated risk of COVID-19 spread and schools may consider hybrid instructional models as a way to reduce the number of people in schools and classrooms at any one time.  Please take a moment to read the latest media release from the Maine Department of Education for further information about this decision (latest MDOE media release). 

At this time, we have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 within RSU #20.  Under the current conditions, we have elected to continue to remain in our hybrid continued learning plan starting on Monday, November 2, 2020.  Fall athletics programs have been canceled for the remainder of the season.  Extracurricular activities will be suspended until a decision is made to go back to our in-person continued learning plan.

The Maine CDC and Maine DOE will issue status updates on a weekly basis for Waldo County.  We will issue an update as soon as Maine CDC and Maine DOE provides an update.
