24 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday 

 Governor Kathy Hochul today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combating COVID-19.  

In addition, the New York State School COVID-19 Report Card, an online dashboard which tracks near real-time COVID-19 infections and testing operations reported by New York schools and school districts, is now updated and available to the public as another source of information for families and communities. As of Monday, September 13th, all schools are required to submit a daily report to the Department on each operational day of the school year. This includes information on cases reported to the school and broken out by students, staff and teachers. Report card data includes: positive cases by date; number of students and staff on site; percentage of on-site positive cases; number of tests administered by school and test type; and date of last submission and update. The website has been updated to simplify reporting for schools, and all information reported since September 13th is now available online. Local school districts should also have this information readily available on their websites. The dashboard also includes lab-reported cases of COVID-19 for students 5-17 years old, as all COVID-19 test results for New York State residents 5-17 years old are reported by laboratories to the Department of Health. This reflects the number of COVID-19 tests and test results for students living in a school district. There may be discrepancies in the two data sets due to reporting lag times and other variables.

"The school COVID-19 report card will help the state as we keep track of infections and trends among students, teachers, staff to provide additional information," Governor Hochul said. "Keeping our children safe and healthy is our number one priority - we can do that by wearing a mask, washing our hands and getting vaccinated if we are eligible to be. Our vaccines have proven effective and safe, they are free and readily available. Getting yours is the best way to protect your community against the virus."
