Avondale Phase 5 Learning

In Phase Five, new cases and deaths continue to decrease for an additional period of time.At this point, the number of active cases has reached a point where infection from other members of the community is less common. With widespread testing, positive rates often fall much lower than earlier phases. Rapid case investigation, contact tracing, and containment strategies cause new cases to continue to fall. Schools open for in-person instruction with moderate required safety protocols.
