Good luck getting DCPS to care

 Duval County had over a thousand positive cases yesterday and a positivity rate of over 23 percent. Staggeringly bad numbers, numbers the district will continue to ignore. 


The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Florida grew by more than 12,000 cases Tuesday amid positivity rates not seen since July -- Florida’s peak of the pandemic. The 22.75% positivity rate statewide based -- nearly double that in some counties -- was driven by a small number of people tested due to closing and/or limited hours of testing sites on Christmas and the holiday weekend.

While the 12,075 cases reported by the Florida Department of Health was not a record one-day increase in Florida, there were 1,024 new cases in Duval County reported Tuesday -- by far the most in a single day since the pandemic began.

It's hard to imagine the numbers being much worse and getting better anytime soon.

It is also hard to imagine the district doing anything but shrugging their shoulders and passing the bucket to the woefully inadequate department of health and their reckless contact tracing.

DCPS has long since shown it cares about one thing and one thing only: butts in seats. People getting sick or worse, well that's just the price of them doing business.
