ALBANY, N.Y. — Anyone with a child attending a school in New York State will now have instant access to the number of positive COVID-19 cases at that school and in the district that school is part of.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday unveiled a School Covid Report Card that will provide a daily report of positive cases among on-site students and staff for every district in the state.
Cuomo said schools must continue to be monitored carefully and that parents, teachers and the public deserve transparency. The state health department has been collecting and reporting data about student testing for two weeks.
Data will by provided by the school districts who organize the tests and the labs who analyze them every 24 hours. You can search for results for your child's school by either the district name or address.
The report card will include all positive cases by date of students and staff by school and school district.
Data from public, private, and charter schools, along with institutions of higher education, including SUNY will be included.
