Teacher creates COVID-19 database to track school cases

You can now track COVID-19 cases at schools and campuses across the United States thanks to the help of a teacher.

The NEA also said the goal of the database is “to shine a light on the complete failure of policymakers to listen to educators’ and parents’ warnings about reopening schools and campuses with no plan or regard for students and faculty safety.”

The information provided in the database is reported by teachers and the NEA works to verify it before publishing it.
