School dashboard and voting Sept 2 update

New dashboard tracks COVID-19 cases in NH schools

“A new dashboard released Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services is tracking reports of COVID-19 cases in schools and colleges across the state. Information can be accessed by school, town or grade level.

Health officials said the dashboard would be updated as new cases were confirmed, though schools might announce cases before they are included in the tool. A check of the dashboard Tuesday showed two of the recent cases in Bedford students but not one at Peter Woodbury School that was announced earlier in the day.

The dashboard also showed there were 11 active COVID-19 cases at the University of New Hampshire, along with 12 recovered cases. There are no current outbreaks or clusters of the coronavirus identified at any New Hampshire schools.
