Tuesday Morning “Official” List Omits Several Cases Already Reported To Parents

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are now at least 319 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Palm Beach County School District, but the real number is apparently much higher. The official list released Tuesday morning does not include several cases that have already been reported to parents through robocalls and emails on Monday. Why those cases are not included in the current updated list — provided by the Palm Beach County School District’s COVID-19 dashboard — is unclear.

As the numbers surge, school officials are apparently growing frustrated with a slow response by the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County, which continues to delay contact tracing.

“The health department is moving at a snail’s pace,” said one senior school district official. “We are receiving next to no support or help when it comes to contact tracing. The department continues to say that there is no proof of student to student spread in schools, but the numbers are suggesting that’s just not true.”


Additional students are returning to “brick and mortar” school this week — it’s unclear if the health department’s alleged slowdown is connected to the continued push by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to have all students back in classrooms. The Palm Beach County pediatric positivity rate for COVID-19 remains high at 11.3-percent.

Here are the early morning numbers from the Palm Beach County School District.

  1. This is crazy! Are the parents held responsible for sending a sick kid to school and spreading the covid-19? Are they responsible for teaching them how to properly wear a mask and keep to social distancing? Are the kids irresponsible or are the parents irresponsible? You need to answer these questions or we will wind up with uneducated children for years to come. They will be in charge of your retirement income. What goes around comes around.
