Again, the official report from the Palm Beach County School District tends to run a few days behind “real time.” Contact tracing must be completed, and cases must be confirmed, before they are added to the official list. BocaNewsNow.com, however, is aware of several student cases that have been reported to parents by principals at schools across Palm Beach County. They will eventually be added to the official list, but most are not on the list you see above.
