NPS COVID-19 Information
The Connecticut Department of Public Health, in collaboration with the Connecticut State Department of Education, launched a dashboard for the public reporting of confirmed COVID-19 cases among PK-12 students and staff in all public and private schools. The data tables are searchable by school and will be maintained on the Connecticut Open Data Portal. Reported data will be updated weekly every Thursday and will reflect total student and staff cases as well as new cases reported from the previous week.
