The Palm Beach County School District COVID-19 Dashboard, promoted as being updated nightly at 11:30 p.m., hasn’t been updated since Thursday night. The Florida Department of Health’s school reporting system hasn’t been updated since September 26th.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District, which guaranteed transparency when it comes to COVID-19 cases, hasn’t updated its highly publicized “dashboard” since October 2nd. That update came after a two-day hiatus. The Palm Beach County School District claims that it updates its numbers at 11:30 p.m.

The Florida Department of Health, which has its own reporting dashboard, hasn’t updated student and staff infection numbers since September 26th.

The lack of information is stunning as the world watches President Donald Trump battle COVID-19 in Walter Reed Medical Center.


The last numbers from the Palm Beach County School District revealed a small but growing population of COVID-19 infected students and staff. There are 33 confirmed cases in the Palm Beach County School District, including 20 employees and 13 students.

There was no immediate explanation as to why the numbers haven’t been updated in days.
