Florida releases new coronavirus data from schools

Schools are welcoming students back to the classroom and the state of Florida is now releasing a report on coronavirus cases within the schools.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Florida’s health department has posted an updated list of confirmed COVID-19 cases in schools.

The latest report contains cases confirmed through Oct. 3 among students, teachers and other staff.

The state last week began providing this information, which is planned to be released on a weekly basis, after receiving pressure for transparency as classrooms reopen to students.

The first batch of data was criticized as being incomplete.

Public school students in Miami-Dade County have begun to return to the classroom, and the first Broward County students will do the same Friday.
