Health & Safety Reopening


New York State has launched an online dashboard so you can access it and easily see if there are any positive COVID-19 cases at your school or district.

New York State is requiring every school district to report the number of tests taken, the type of tests they are, and what the results are every day. Those numbers will be posted on the dashboard by the state so you can look up the numbers for your school or district.

The dashboard shows the numbers for students and staff, and if they were doing in-person, remote, or hybrid learning. The information will come from school districts, health departments, and the labs that are doing the testing.

You can access the online dashboard here:
