Pennsylvania closes all schools for two weeks

Tom Wolf announces school closures for 10 days

Governor Tom Wolf announced on Friday that all schools in the state will be closed for the next two weeks to slow the spread of COVID-19 novel coronavirus.

Eligible schools are being allowed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to allow schools to serve meals to low-income students in a take-out fashion.

Other states have made similar measures to close schools in response to the spread of COVID-19.
