APS Releases Plan For Enhanced COVID-safe Practices

From KOB-TV:

New Mexico's largest school district released its plan for enhanced COVID-safe practices Monday.

The Albuquerque Public Schools COVID-19 response team has consulted with health experts to create the following plan. There's a few scenarios listed:

  • Upon a school reaching a threshold of 3% or more of its population (students & staff) while infectious in the past 14 days, enhanced COVID-19 safe practices shall be recommended. District personnel will conduct a site visit, meet with school administration to ensure compliance with current practices, and provide recommendations for enhanced mitigation strategies. 
  • A school reaching a threshold of 5% or more of its population (students & staff) while infectious in the past 14 days will require enhanced COVID-19 safe practices. District personnel will conduct a site visit, meet with school personnel to ensure compliance with current practices, and provide recommendations and identify required enhanced mitigation strategies.
  • 7-14 days after a school is required to implement enhanced COVID-19 safe practices, the rate of current COVID-19 cases will be reviewed, and a follow-up site visit shall be conducted to determine if additional mitigation strategies are necessary.
  • 14-21 days after a school is required to implement enhanced COVID-19 safe practices, the rate of current COVID-19 cases will be reviewed. Enhanced mitigation strategies will be lifted when district personnel confirm current COVID-19 cases are below 3% of the school’s population (students & staff) in the past 14-21 days.
