UPDATE: 12:40 PM ET: School District Spokeswoman Claudia Shea says the data discrepancy is “human error.”
”The dashboard is intended to reflect confirmed cases since campuses reopened on September 16th,” said Shea to BocaNewsNow.com. “Data was incorrectly entered to include previous cases.The dashboard was updated overnight and is now accurate. Measures have been put in place to ensure accuracy moving forward.”
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The COVID-19 dashboard for the Palm Beach County School District is only three days old but already questions are being asked about its accuracy.
The school district reported 19 COVID-19 staff infections when schools opened on Monday. Today, Wednesday, that number has mysteriously dropped to 12. The dashboard is supposed to show cumulative and current, so it’s unclear how the total number dropped instead of increased.
We have reached out to the Palm Beach County School District and will update as soon as we receive an explanation. At this point, there are no student reports of COVID-19.
Here are the screen shots from the dashboard on Monday and today.
