NIS COVID Level Responses

An important part of our COVID response is to determine levels of risk to the community at specific times using agreed upon criteria. The four responses and levels of risk are described below.  NIS will make a decision based on a best-fit balance of the criteria. Please note that meeting one single criteria in a level may or may not be deemed sufficient to move to that level, based on contextual factors.

Level Criteria and Implications

 

NOTE:  These guidelines are based on current understanding of COVID transmission and these may be reviewed and modified as and when needed should new information come to light.  While it is not possible to completely eliminate the risk of transmission, compliance with these guidelines will significantly mitigate risk for staff, students and families.
