The Florida Department of Health released a report Tuesday that lists COVID-19 cases in schools across the state. But the numbers don’t add up.  

More precisely, the amount of confirmed cases that Leon County Schools reports and the numbers reported by the state health department aren’t the same. 

The state shows confirmed cases at 23 schools in Leon County between Sept. 6 and Sept. 26, which includes laboratory schools, charters and universities.

But the report is missing more than half of cases that local educational institutions have reported themselves.

At Florida State University, which has reported 1,448 students positive for COVID-19, the state health department lists only one case.
