Gov. Roy Cooper is strongly urging that all schools provide in-person learning for students.
Cooper made that announcement in a news briefing Tuesday afternoon.
“It’s important schools follow the safety protocols laid out by North Carolina health officials,” Cooper said. “That guidance reinforces in-person learning while maintaining strong public health measures.”
Cooper said students should still have the option of remote learning this school if that is best for them.
“And teachers who are at risk should be providing that remote instruction,” Cooper said. “But students who are ready to return to the classrooms should have that chance.”
The governor’s announcement comes days after three Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doctors published a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association about how safe in-person learning could be possible during the pandemic. #WakeUpCLT #COVID19
