Boca Raton COVID-19 Florida Palm Beach County Schools

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The COVID-19 count continues to rise in the Palm Beach County School district amidst claims that the numbers are dramatically lower than reality due to slow contact tracing by the Florida Department of Health. We reported on this yesterday.

There is still no comment from Department of Health Spokesperson Alex Shaw.

Today, the Palm Beach County School District is reporting 52 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with 28 logged as employees and 24 as students. Here’s the breakdown.

Employee Infections: Atlantic Community High, Banyan Creek Elementary, Binks Forest Elementary, Boca Raton Community Middle, Boynton Beach Community High, Carver Community Middle, Clifford O.

Spady Elementary, Seminole Trails Elementary, Sunset Palms Elementary, Turning Points Academy (3 cases), Watson B.
