What about schools?
As of January 1, 2021, the metrics for in-school instruction are no longer mandatory. It is up to the school or district to determine if in-person instruction is safe and the right fit for their students. It is still recommended, however, that transition to in-person instruction does not occur until Washington County meets the metrics set forth by the governor and the Oregon Health Authority (metrics subject to change).
