A website where teachers across the U.S. can report a confirmed COVID-19 case in their school shows dozens in New Jersey.

The website was launched by the National Education Association, specifically a Kansas high school teachers, and serves as a hub for educators to report virus cases and health concerns.

All submissions are reviewed by NEA staff and verified by checking school websites, press releases, media reports and other public sources. 

The cases listed are by no means a "comprehensive accounting of all cases at schools and campuses," the website says. Each case is dated and is accompanied by a link to the verification.
