BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District added 554 COVID-19 cases in just 21 calendar days. The school district ended 2020 with 1,268 COVID-19 cases. That number, as Monday, January 25th gets underway, is now 1,822.
The disturbing case increase comes as another 15,000 students are expected to be sent by their parents or guardians back to school in another week or the start of the second semester. That increase will create a near 52-48 percent split, with slightly more students continuing to learn from home versus those who will be attending school in person.

Boca Raton Community High School: 37 COVID cases.
Boca Raton Community Middle School: 24 COVID cases.
