There should be fewer questions about who has tested positive in a school district for the coronavirus with a new reporting tool in New York.

The state has launched a new COVID report card for every school district in the state that includes, not only the district report, but the results of lab testing breaking down the number of students and staff on-site or off-site that has tested positive and in what specific school building in the district that there has been a confirmed case as well as the current teaching module, whether in-person or remote, and the information for neighboring districts. 

The information is at schoolcovidreportcard.health.ny.gov. Click on public schools and type in your district or specific school name.
