BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Just a reminder: the Palm Beach County School District is closed on Monday, January 18, 2021 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. day. There will be no in-person or distance learning.

The closure, which of course has nothing to do with COVID, comes as the school district is again dealing with a COVID spike. There are now 1,608 confirmed COVID-19 cases logged since schools opened for “in person” learning back in September. But the real number of interest is how many cases have been logged since school resumed in 2021. That number is 340 — exceptionally high for just 13 days of school. The school year ended with 1,268 cases.

The Palm Beach County Pediatric Positivity rate continues to rise daily — it’s now 13.7 percent. The pediatric positivity rate includes cases involving anyone 18 or under.
