As of September 4, 2020 there are 22 students and 5 staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 since the start of the school year at the end of August.
In August, 8 students and 2 staff members tested positive for the virus. So far in September, 14 students and 3 staff have tested positive.
Right now, there are 21 cases at elementary schools, 6 cases from middle schools and 3 cases from high schools.
The dashboard shows the number of students and staff attending or working in brick-and-mortar schools. The date of the case is the date when the district confirmed the results.
Charter school data is not included. Action News Jax reporter, Meghan Moriarty, reached out to DCPS asking why they aren’t included and when they plan to be included in the data. She is waiting to hear back.
Action News Jax spoke with a parent of a virtual, charter school learner. While her son does not go in person to class, he does play football for the school. She wants more transparency from private and charter schools so she can properly make decisions for her family, especially since she has another son with autoimmune diseases.
