State Guidance for Extra-curricular School Activities

Chehalis, WA – Washington State officials have created two tools to help school administrators make decisions around resuming extra-curricular activities in K-12 schools. They are an online COVID-19 risk assessment dashboard and a School Decision Tree that together offer guidance based on real-time data.

The dashboard at https://coronavirus.wa.gov/what-you-need-know/covid-19-risk-assessment-dashboard quantifies the level of community COVID-19 spread. It includes key metrics that were developed for five risk assessment areas.

The DOH School Decision Tree breaks down its recommendations based on low, moderate or high community spread identified by the COVID-19 risk assessment dashboard. The decision tree recommendations are meant to provide an informed platform for discussions between school administrators and public health officials.
