TALLAHASSEE, Florida – For the first time, the Florida Department of Health released a report of COVID-19 cases in schools across the state.
For months, the public, including ABC Action News, has been asking the state to release such data so that families in Florida can be notified of possible COVID-19 outbreaks at their child’s school.
An important finding from the development on Tuesday is that cases from August are not taken into account. Some charter schools that ABC Action News did not confirm cases upon request are included in the state data.
