A number of school districts are heeding Governor Andy Beshear’s request to shut down for at least two weeks starting Monday.
Beshear made the recommendation Thursday as a response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic.
Beshear is asking for all schools—public and private—to close for a minimum of two weeks.
Kentucky’s two largest school districts, Jefferson and Fayette, announced last night they would be closed.
Some of the other county school systems that have also announced they will close are Barren, Daviess, Hardin, Larue, Pulaski, and Warren.
