Re-Opening Guidance

Coconino County recommends following guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Arizona Department of Health Services. Businesses are encouraged to develop reopening plans that support best public health practices based on the current guidance and the current local situation.

To submit plans for a free review, please download and save the attached cover sheet.  The Re-entry Cover Sheet functions best if filled and saved in either Adobe Reader or Fox-it Reader.  Follow the directions on the form and then submit the plans with the cover sheet at the link listed below.  The listed URL can also be copied and pasted into the web browser of choice.   

Reopening plans may be submitted to Coconino County’s secure web interface for review at: https://app.sharebase.com/#/folder/663/share/473---jNzL-BSFwwns6IuXI2FwBEp51M.  

Submission and plan review do not assure compliance with required state and federal guidelines. Businesses are encouraged to prioritize health and physical distancing in reopening decisions. Plans will be reviewed by a team of public health experts. The target return time is within 3 business days of submission, but may exceed that timeframe based on demand. 

HIGHLIGHTED TOPIC - Schools

Weekly Schools Update (10/30/2020).

  • Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) has updated the online school data dashboard used to assist schools with decision making. The school benchmarks are now aligned with the ADHS business benchmarks. School benchmarks are no longer displayed as “met and not met” criteria, but now provide a range of metrics to determine minimal, moderate, and substantial transmission. Based on the level of transmission, ADHS provides a recommended delivery model of either virtual, hybrid, or traditional/in-person. The Coconino County Schools Update aligns with this change. More information can be found on the ADHS website.
  • Coconino County does not have the authority to dictate if schools are open, closed, or in a hybrid model. The County provides data which leaders in schools use to make decisions.

  • CDC indicators and thresholds for risk of introduction and transmission of COVID-19 in schools
    • The newly released CDC guidance, Indicators for Dynamic School Decision-Making, posted above, provides additional information regarding mitigation strategies for schools, transmission risk by learning modality, and proposed indicators for risk of transmission in schools to inform school decision making during the return to in-person instruction. This document is meant to assist officials in making decisions rather than establishing regulatory requirements, and does not supersede ADHS Benchmarks currently in use. This guidance can be used as an informative tool, however there are differences between the ADHS School Benchmarks currently in use by Coconino County, and the outlined indicators developed by the CDC. The CDC indicator framework includes additional detail, delineating Core Indicators and Secondary Indicators, as well as additional transmission risk ranges.
