DeWine announces new schools dashboard on COVID-19 website
COLUMBUS — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced last week that the state has launched the Schools Dashboard and the Children’s Dashboard on its COVID-19 website to provide school districts and parents information to make decisions about their child’s education and social interactions.
The Schools Dashboard will show new and cumulative COVID-19 cases reported to schools by parents/guardians and staff. The data can be sorted by county or school district and includes students and staff. Schools are required to report cases to their assigned local health department who then report to the Ohio Department of Health.
The Children’s Dashboard, developed in consultation with the Ohio Children’s Hospital Association, includes information about cases and hospitalizations related to COVID-19 among children aged 0-17 in Ohio by selected demographics and county of residence.
Both dashboards are available at coronavirus.ohio.gov.
