COVID-19 dashboard on hold due to Department of Health privacy concerns

Aug. 26, 2020 – The Florida Department of Health in Duval notified the school district on Tuesday that under Florida Statute 381.0031, the district cannot publish school specific data related to COVID-19 without permission from the Florida Department of Health (state level).

Earlier this week, the district began publishing positive COVID-19 case counts by school on its news website in anticipation of an automated dashboard providing the same information in the near future.

Duval County Public Schools is now working closely with the Department of Health to ensure that we provide accurate and timely data and seek the necessary permission to publish this information.

The Department of Health is developing a report with information pertaining to educational institutions.

Duval County Public Schools believes this is important information for families to have as they make decisions regarding enrollment options now and in the future. The district hopes that we are able to resolve this situation soon.
