Detroit District Halts In-Person Learning Due To Uptick In Covid-19 Cases
The Detroit school district is suspending in-person learning and its learning centers until at least January 11 due to an increase of positive COVID-19 cases in the city. The closures are effective beginning Friday.
The district joins several other school districts in Michigan shifting to all remote learning.
“Based on this week’s reporting, the infection rate will reach 6% or higher by Friday. There are no signs that these rising numbers will decrease soon,” superintendent Nikolai Vitti wrote in an email to staff Thursday morning.
