The growth in school-based cases of coronavirus is accelerating. Cases are appearing in clusters, with almost as many being reported among staff as there are among students. As children often do not exhibit symptoms, there could be many more student cases than the schools know about.
Pinellas County: There were five cases at Osceola Fundamental High and four at St. Petersburg High. There were two cases at the Walter Pownall Administrative Center, which had been relatively quiet after a rash of cases in the first two weeks of school.
There was one case each at Curtis Fundamental, Dunedin, Forest Lakes, High Point, Oakhurst, San Jose and Walsingham elementary schools; Clearwater Fundamental, Meadowlawn, Oak Grove and Osceola middle schools; Discovery Academy of Science; and several high schools: East Lake, Gibbs, Northeast, Palm Harbor University, Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg Collegiate and Tarpon Springs.
