ALBANY, N.Y. (WCAX) - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says all schools in the state will provide a daily report card on cases of COVID among students and staff.

With most schools reopening this week, Cuomo on Tuesday warned there likely will be an uptick in coronavirus cases. He stressed that it’s important to make sure parents have that information and they’ll be able to access it all through a state website.

“It will tell you everything you need to know about where that school district is with COVID. How many tests they’ve taken, what the results were," said Cuomo, D-New York.

Cuomo is also requiring colleges to report their COVID data to the state health department. Schools with more than 100 positives in a two-week period may be ordered to switch from in-person to remote learning.
