How Many Coronavirus Cases Are Happening In Schools? This Tracker Keeps Count.

NPR |

The National Education Association has launched a tracker of cases in public K-12 schools.

The tracker is broken down by state, and shows schools and counties with known cases, suspected cases and deaths, as well as whether those infected were students or staff. It also includes links to the local news reports so users know where the virus data comes from.

The NEA tracker builds on the volunteer efforts of a Kansas theater teacher Alisha Morris. In early August, just ahead of the new school year, Morris was looking for data about coronavirus cases in U.S. schools but nothing gave her a cohesive picture of how the virus was spreading in schools.
