BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The total confirmed COVID case count in the Palm Beach County School District is now 25, but there appears to be no instance where there are more than two cases in an individual school or facility. That suggests that there is no “outbreak” in the schools. Distance learning is only in its second week, so it’s still early to interpret all numbers, whether good or bad.
There are two instances where both a student and staff member have tested positive: Binks Forest Elementary and Kirklane Elementary.
Here’s the breakdown as of Wednesday morning, September 30, 2020:
Employees have tested positive in: Atlantic Community High, Binks Forest Elementary, Boca Raton Community Middle, Boynton Beach Community High, Carver Community Middle, Clifford O. Taylor/Kirklane Elementary, Del Prado Elementary, Diamond View Elementary, H.L. Johnson Elementary, Jaega Middle, Park Vista Community High, Regional Office Central, S.D. Spady Elementary, Sunset Palms Elementary, Turning Points Acadamy, West Gate Elementary.
Students have tested positive in: Binks Forest Elementary, Christa McAuliffe Middle, Citrus Cove Elementary, Clifford O. Taylor/Kirklane Elementary, Coral Sunset Elementary, Palm Beach Central High, Palm Beach Gardens Community High, Spanish River Community High, West Boca Raton Community High.
