State officials recently launched “The COVID-19 Report Card,” an online dashboard which tracks real-time COVID-19 infections and testing operations of every New York school and school district.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is directing schools, local health departments, labs and all testing sites to properly collect and report COVID-19 testing data for students and staff at each school in New York State, 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 NYS Dept. of Health, the COVID-19 Report Card will be live at https://schoolcovidreportcard.health.ny.gov/. 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.
