FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WVNS) — A meeting of the Fayette County Board of Education on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020 determined how often students will be in the classroom in the coming weeks. The board is taking precautions about in-person instruction due to recent surges in COVID-19 cases.
At the meeting on Thursday, it was determined schools will stay on the Blended Model. This will continue until the Positivity and the Incident Rate are both in Green on the County Alert System Map. Schools will remain in the model until both metrics remain Green for at least one week.
As of Friday’s map Fayette County is Green on Percent Positivity at 1.88-percent. The county is Gold on Incident Rate at 11.79-percent.
