COVID Overwhelms Schools; Long COVID As A Disability; Nurses Wanted
The number of positive COVID cases within Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) tripled between Friday and Monday.
To the south, Hillsborough County quarantined thousands of students just a week after the start of school as COVID-19 rips through Florida’s west coast.
DCPS reported 222 covid cases, representing more than a 170% increase from the first week of school, up 140 cases since last Friday. Some medical professionals believe this number is an undercount.
