Spread of COVID-19 Slowing in Broward Schools, Data Show

Broward School Board Defies Governor's Order: Masks Stay

Broward County Public Schools have recorded 3,400 COVID-19 cases among students and staff as of Oct. 25, up 188 from the 3,212 recorded as of Oct. 16, data show.

Coronavirus infections have been confirmed for at least 2,757 students and 643 school employees, according to the school system’s COVID-19 dashboard.
