All Maryland public schools will remain closed for at least the next four weeks as the state attempts to limit the spread of COVID-19, State Schools Superintendent Karen Salmon announced Wednesday during a press conference with Gov. Larry Hogan.
“We do not make this decision lightly. However, with the challenges facing our state and our country, we have a responsibility to ensure the health and safety of our school communities and the communities at large,” Salmon said.
Salmon said state school personnel are working with local school systems to “resume the continuity of learning” next week. Schools will be closed until at least April 24.
