DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — Davis County announced 19 of its schools would be moving to remote learning Monday evening. The remote learning would go into effect on Wednesday, Jan. 19.

Gov. Cox issued a letter that suspended schools to “test to stay” protocols for two weeks on Jan. 13. The order allows schools to change to remote learning during the two week period if a schools’ amount of cases exceed the threshold established depending on the student population.

The case threshold is as follows; 30 cases per a school of 1,500 people or less and 2% of the school population for schools that have over 1,500 people.

The following schools had numbers exceeding the threshold:

  • Bountiful High has 81 cases, with a threshold of 31
  • Clearfield High has 90 cases, with a threshold of 43
  • Davis High has 126 cases, with a threshold of 46
  • Farmington High has 79 cases, with a threshold of 44
  • Northridge High has 80 cases, with a threshold of 41
  • Syracuse High has 105 cases, with a threshold of 51
  • Centennial Junior High has 39 cases with a threshold of 30
  • Centerville Junior High has 57 cases with a threshold of 30
  • Fairfield Junior High has 58 cases with a threshold of 30
  • Farmington Junior High has 66 cases, with a threshold of 30
  • Kaysville Junior High has 40 cases with a threshold of 30
  • Legacy Junior High has 41 cases with a threshold of 30
  • Millcreek Junior High has 35 cases with a threshold of 30
  • Mueller Park Junior High has 55 cases with a threshold of 30
  • North Davis Junior High has 36 cases with a threshold of 30
  • Shoreline Junior High has 31 cases with a threshold of 30
  • South Davis Junior High has 77 cases, with a threshold of 30
  • Syracuse Junior High has 48 cases with a threshold of 30
  • West Point Junior High has 60 cases, with a threshold of 30

According to a release from the school, “The goal of remote learning is to continue to educate students, while keeping them physically separate from one another. The intent is to keep students separate for a five-day period (which could include a weekend) to slow the spread of the virus.”

Davis County wasn’t alone, multiple schools across the state announced they were changing to remote learning due to high COVID-19 case counts including all the schools in the Salt Lake City School District.

In Weber District, Roy, Weber, and Fremont High Schools have moved to remote learning.
