JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Duval County Public Schools is making a change to how it updates its COVID-19 dashboard in order to accelerate the timing of COVID-19 notifications.
DCPS says it will update its dashboard the day a new case is reported to the district is confirmed.
Originally, DCPS updated the dashboard following the Department of Health’s complete investigation of contact tracing.
The new process will result in a more rapid notification for families at the school.
The department of health will continue to do a contact tracing investigation and then work with the school to notify students or staff that must quarantine.
