About the New York State Department of Health COVID-19 Report Card
As part of its efforts to ensure New Yorkers have timely information, the New York State Department of Health has created an online COVID-19 Report Card that provides information about cases connected to schools and institutes of higher education.
Our school district submits information daily to the state for this report card, or “dashboard.” You can check the dashboard at any time by clicking here and entering “General Brown” under the Public Schools tag.
It is also important to note that in addition to school districts, COVID-19 cases are also being reported to the state directly by labs. For this reason, there could be a case reported on the dashboard that either the district is unaware of or that the county health department has not yet verified with the district.
Additionally, labs report cases by student address, which means a case of a student who does not attend a district school (e.g. a home school, private or parochial school student), could appear in the district’s dashboard in the column titled “Lab Reported Positives based on Residential Address.”
We will continue to notify district staff and families directly once the district receives confirmation that a student or staff member has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
