State leaders gave a formula for districts to look at based on how many COVID-19 cases per population that their county is seeing:


Based on the most recent data and recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health collected from Sept. 20 through Oct. 3, nine counties have more than 50 cases per 10,000.

According to the state's Safe Learning Model, Waseca, Martin, Pipestone, Kandiyohi, Yellow Medicine, Lac qui Parle, Lyon, Chippewa, and Murray counties would fall under the recommendation to conduct full distance learning for students.

Minnesota now has two counties that qualify for the state's recommendation for in-person learning for all students.

The rest of Minnesota's counties lie somewhere in the hybrid learning model.

Week-to-week some counties with large variances include:

  • Faribault County: 13.67 tp 24.47
  • Fillmore County: 13.67 to 24.47
  • Freeborn County: 27.52 to 13.43
  • Jackson County: 41.80 to 24.88
  • Kandiyohi County: 38.21 to 56.03
  • Lake of the Woods: 7.88 to 28.88
  • Pennington County: 9.87 to 17.63
  • Pine County: 56.64 to 39.48
  • Pipestone County: 43.55 to 77.30
  • Redwood County: 57.40 to 35.88
  • Swift County: 52.07 to 36.13
  • Todd County: 17.18 to 25.37
  • Waseca County: 164.28 to 159.50
