Education Leaders Plan To Keep Schools Open

>>Education Leaders Plan To Keep Schools Open

(Harrisburg, PA) -- State education leaders are still planning to keep schools open despite the state's rise in COVID-19 cases. Health officials say the rolling seven-day case average has stopped increasing, so it seems the state is seeing another plateau. They added that it's a higher plateau than they'd like to see, but it's good news. With this, the CDC's recommendations for masks and three-feet of social distancing in schools, and the state's efforts to vaccinate teachers ahead of the school year, state officials believe it is safe to open full in-person learning.
