USD 309 remains in RED Gating Criteria
for the week of 
November 2-6, 2020.

USD 309 Panther Families:

Each Friday the Reno County Health Department releases the 14-day PTR (positive test rate) and the 14-day new case average.  The data released dictates the gating criteria color we follow for the coming week.  We will remain in the RED for next week.  COVID-19 in Reno County is down slightly this week.

This Week’s Data:                                                   Last Week’s Data:

14 Day PTR-10/30 21.0%                                    14 Day PTR-10/23 21.9%

14 Day New Case-10/30 - 340                              14 Day New Case-10/23 - 356 


For more information, please see the Reno County Health Department Dashboard

I encourage everyone living in Reno to be tested at the Free Community Testing Events.   Log on to, for more information and directions as to how to sign up.  We need our community to take responsibility to social distance, wear a mask, wash hands, and stay home when ill. 


New Initiatives in Reno County to help slow the spread of Covid-19 are below:

Cut Off Covid 10-Day Challenge – challenge is to change behavior

  • Wear a Mask and Social distance 6 feet at all times in indoor spaces (outside of your home), plus maintain at least 6 feet of distance outdoors.
  • Avoid being indoors with non-household members except for school, work that can’t be done from home, and activities deemed absolutely essential.
  • Work from home, if possible, and hold meetings online rather than in person.
  • Hold gatherings online rather than in person, and avoid situations that involve singing, refreshments, and other high-risk activities.
  • Support local restaurants and businesses through take-out, curbside delivery, and online shopping.
