Gov. Tom Wolf on Friday announced that all K-12 schools in Pennsylvania would be closed for 10 business days beginning Monday in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The governor said the decision was made in consultation with school districts as well as state and local officials.
Many school districts in Western Pennsylvania have already announced closures of two weeks or more.
Mr. Wolf said the state will reevaluate at the end of the 10-day period and decide whether continued closure is needed.
