Inaccurate information on NYS COVID-19 Data Dashboard for FFCS

Note: The New York State Department of Health has acknowledged and confirmed this instance was an error, and the dashboard has since been corrected.

The NYS COVID-19 Data Dashboard is inaccurately reporting a positive case for Fonda-Fultonville this morning, Friday, Sept. 25. There are no positive cases in the district at this time, as confirmed by the Montgomery County Department of Public Health. The state’s reporting website had technical issues when Fonda-Fultonville staff added the district’s daily information on Sept. 24. These technical issues were documented and submitted to the state that day. Officials believe this is the cause of the inaccuracy. School leaders are working together with the Montgomery County Department of Public Health to rectify the issue with the NYS Department of Health to correct the inaccurate information.
