FL DofAgandCS Secretary Nikki Fried: "If @GovRonDeSantis' administration is anything, they are..."

Florida’s 12th Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Working to keep Florida growing.



If @GovRonDeSantis’ administration is anything, they are consistent in their efforts to hide data from the public.

This time they are telling Duval Schools not to publish school specific #COVID19 data. Data parents deserve to have.

What are you hiding?

Just five days into the new school year, Duval County Public Schools announced it will stop publishing school-related COVID-19 cases — and district personnel say the health department is to blame.

Going into a school year taking place during a global health pandemic, Duval County Public Schools touted transparency.

Superintendent Diana Greene said the district was going the extra mile, working on its own dashboard with updated COVID-19 case numbers, that was expected to launch the first day of school.

Instead, a static webpage the district started updating with confirmed cases on Monday has been untouched for two days. District spokesman Tracy Pierce said that's because on Tuesday, the Duval County Department of Health told the district it cannot publish "school specific data related to COVID-19" without the state health department's permission.
