Ohio Governor DeWine announced on August 27, 2020 an Ohio Department of Health order that requires K-12 schools to establish a mechanism for parents and guardians to report confirmed cases of COVID-19 among their children. In that order is the responsibility of each district to make publicly available non-identifying information* about positive COVID-19 cases.

Toledo Public Schools’ coordinator for Health Services is responsible for tracking all COVID-19 positive cases and reporting confirmed cases to the Toledo Lucas County Health Department.
