Kentucky Education Assn. Calls for Remote Learning to Start School Year

Kentucky’s teacher union is calling on school officials to delay the beginning of in-class instruction until the state’s COVID-19 positivity rate drops.

The Kentucky Education Association released a statement Friday calling on schools to start the year with virtual learning from home.

The union said districts should avoid reopening until the positivity rate of the state and the school’s county remain under 4% for 21 consecutive days.

Gov. Andy Beshear said Friday the state’s positivity rate — a seven-day rolling figure reflecting the average number of tests coming back positive for COVID-19 — had increased to 5.57%.
