COVID-19 Facility Use Updates

  •  COVID-19 Mitigation Plan by Transmission Level

    The District will use county-level COVID-19 transmission level (14-day case rate per 10,000 in Dakota County) to determine mitigation strategies that will be implemented in our buildings and on district transportation, as indicated on the COVID-19 Dashboard.  More information about our County and District levels, please visit our COVID-19 Dashboard and Mitigation Plan.


    Beginning Monday, Nov. 8, universal masking will be required for all students, staff and visitors to all Lakeville Area Schools buildings for a minimum of 2 weeks, through at least Nov. 21.

    As of today, the case rate for Dakota County is 66.4 cases per 10,000 residents over the last 14 days. This case rate is up 19.9 points from this time last week, and significantly exceeds our threshold for the high transmission level on our COVID-19 mitigation plan

    Face Coverings

    Face covering requirements based on the latest case rates will remain in place a minimum of two weeks (through November 21).

    Face coverings are required indoors for all students age 2 through grade 12 regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings are required indoors for all District staff and visitors regardless of vaccination status.

    Face coverings are required to be worn on school buses at all times by all persons, as required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), regardless of vaccination status.
