Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WVVA) - Public schools in the Mountain State will not re-open due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That announcement comes from Governor Jim Justice as part of his daily briefing.

The Republican governor had previously canceled in-person classes through the end of April, but now says he has "no choice but to extend the statewide closures." Online classes and other remote learning strategies will continue.

Justice had previously resisted calls to close schools for the remainder of the year, saying it would be good for kids to return to classrooms even if for a few weeks.
