NY Launches Covid-19 ‘Report Card’ for Schools

 New York State launched its “Covid-19 Report Card” for schools Tuesday, an online dashboard which tracks real-time COVID-19 infections and testing operations for every New York school and school district.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s executive order requires schools, local health departments, labs and all testing sites to collect and report COVID-19 testing data for students and staff at each school for use in the online tool, at https://schoolcovidreportcard.health.ny.gov

“Facts empower people to make informed decisions for the health and safety of themselves and their families,”  Cuomo said. “The COVID-19 Report Card will give parents, faculty and students the most up-to-date information on the status of their school and their school district’s testing and results. I urge our school communities to stay vigilant and be smart.” 

The COVID-19 Report Card will provide parents, teachers, students and all New Yorkers with comprehensive data updated on a daily basis, including:

  • Positive infections by date of students & staff by school & school district
  • Whether school/district (& student and staff) are remote, in-person, or hybrid
  • Number of students and staff on-site
  • Percentage of on-site students & staff who test positive
  • Number of tests administered by the school, test type, lab used and lag time
  • Date of last submission/update
