Online dashboard tracks real-time COVID-19 infections & testing operations of every school & school district

Signs executive order to ensure schools, local health departments, labs and all testing sites properly collect and report COVID-19 data on daily basis

COVID-19 report card data includes: positive cases by date of students and staff; number of students and staff on-site; percentage of on-site positive cases; number of tests administered by school, test type, lab used and lag time; date of last submission and update

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday announced the launch of "The COVID-19 Report Card,” an online dashboard that tracks real-time COVID-19 infections and testing operations of every New York school and school district. The governor acted by executive order in directing schools, local health departments, labs and all testing sites properly collect and report COVID-19 testing data for students and staff at each school in New York, ensuring this information can be accurately presented on the online “COVID-19 Report Card.”

As schools reopen and districts, local health departments and labs begin reporting this data to the New York State Department of Health, "The COVID-19 Report Card” will be live 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 and staff by school and school district
  • Whether school/district (and student and staff) are remote, in-person or hybrid
  • Number of students and staff on-site
  • Percentage of on-site students and staff who test positive
  • Number of tests administered by the school, test type, lab used and lag time
  • Date of last submission/update

"The COVID-19 Report Card” online dashboard features user-friendly design to make it easy for parents, teachers, students and all New Yorkers to access the data in one central location. Visitors to the website can simply type in their home address to identify their school district, select their specific school, and find all reported positives, a breakdown of testing and results for students and teachers and the current enrollment. The dashboard will feature 7-day trend charts so visitors can track results over time.

Of the 57,826 test results reported to New York on Monday, 557 (0.96%) were positive. Each region's percentage of positive test results reported over the past three days is as follows:
