There are currently no schools in Rockland County that have any plans to switch to remote learning due to the pandemic.
Across the state, Mid-Hudson schools rank fifth for total cases this fall semester, behind Long Island, New York City, Western New York and the Finger Lakes.
According to the state, there are 192 confirmed cases of the omicron variant, which so far, seems to cause only mild symptoms but is highly contagious.
There are no confirmed cases of the strain in Rockland County, which could be attributed to vaccinations. At least 88% of the population has received at least one vaccine dose and two-thirds of the county's hospitalized COVID cases are unvaccinated.
