NYS Micro-clusters and Zones

New York State is implementing a new strategy of aggressively responding to micro-clusters in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 in a defined geographic area. By doing so, they aim to prevent broader viral transmission that would result in widespread economic shutdowns.

The Governor’s 9-page plan can be summarized that they are continuing to monitor positive cases throughout New York State. They have categorized parts of our state into different tiers. When case numbers reach certain threshold levels, those areas may be categorized into different color-coded zones of yellow, orange and red. Each zone has certain restricted and permitted activities for a minimum of 14 days, and all zones require strict adherence to Department of Health guidance. 

Please see the chart below of what is required when an area is designated to be in each of the color coded zones.

Full details on the NYS micro-cluster strategy can be found at this link. Additional information on NYS Guidance can be accessed here.   

On November 11, 2020, Governor Cuomo designated parts of Monroe County as a Yellow Zone and must follow the set protocols. Brockport Central School District is NOT currently in the yellow zone nor are we subject to the yellow zone protocols. 

A list of reported cases for the Brockport School District can be found on the COVID-19 School Report Card.

Cornell University researchers have developed a new interactive web-based map application to track coronavirus cases within each school district in New York. The NYS School District COVID-19 Tracker includes case estimates by geographic boundaries, socioeconomic factors, and demographics including children living in poverty, people with disabilities, and others. 

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will notify you of any changes. The health and safety of our students, staff and families remains our top priority.
