Governor Cuomo says school districts are being required to provide coronavirus testing data.

Starting Tuesday, school districts will be required to provide daily coronavirus testing reports to the state Department of Health. That includes the number of people testing positive in each in school.

Governor Cuomo says the information will be available to the public on a dashboard. There will be a link to the dashboard on every school district’s website.

“I hope this will give the teachers and parents some confidence that the plans are being implemented," he said. "And if the plans aren’t being implemented, we want to know that.”
