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. 27 through Oct. 10, 19 counties have more than 50 cases per 10,000. In the previous data collection period, nine counties had more than 50 cases per 10,000.

According to the state's Safe Learning Model, the following counties would fall under the recommendation to conduct full distance learning for students:

  • Rock
  • Chippewa
  • Kandiyohi
  • Pipestone
  • Waseca
  • Mahnomen
  • Morrison
  • Clay
  • Lincoln
  • Murray
  • Wilkin
  • Big Stone
  • Yellow Medicine
  • Martin
  • Lyon
  • Itasca
  • Wadena
  • Lac Qui Parle
  • Beltrami

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:

  • Rock County: 32.93 to 90.30
  • Chippewa County: 51.62 to 79.93
  • Kandiyohi County: 56.03 to 75.48
  • Waseca County: 160.03 to 69.65
  • Mahnomen County: 29.06 to 67.20
  • Martin County: 93.17 to 52.59
  • Mille Lacs: 19.05 nto 48.97
