BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District just launched its COVID-19 dashboard to report infections in students and teachers. The dashboard is similar to those being used in other large Florida counties, including Hillsborough which is almost identical in size based on student population.
The dashboard, as of 6 p.m. Monday, reveals 19 Palm Beach County School District employees have tested positive for COVID-19. No students have reported positive tests at this point, but in-person education only started hours before the dashboard was finalized.
A COVID-19 dashboard wasn’t a sure thing in Palm Beach County as Deputy Superintendent Keith Oswald suggested that releasing COVID-19 information would violate HIPAA — a blatant mistruth. There was significant pushback from parents, teachers, even School Board members who called on the school district to provide complete transparency into the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds once schools reopened.
The current update shows a mix of teachers and transportation workers testing positive. Use this link to access the Palm Beach County School District COVID-19 dashboard.
