A new interative map has been launched today that allows anyone to search for their local school and see government data on the number of cases in the area, and whether it’s on a local “watchlist”.
The Covid-19 Map for Schools has been created by the National Education Union to show the Covid infection rate around individual schools and has links to the NEU’s guidance. It will also encourage people to write to their MP to demand better access to testing for school staff and pupils.
There are now (30 September 2020) nearly 6,000 schools are in areas with coronavirus interventions according to the union.
Currently, the website is updated weekly.
