Utah Teachers Call For Remote Learning As Virus Cases Surge
Utah’s largest teachers union has called for the governor to move all public secondary schools in high coronavirus transmission areas to remote learning.
On Friday, the Utah Education Association also called for Republican Gov. Gary Herbert to suspend all extracurricular activities that can’t comply with social distancing guidelines as the state reported a single-day record of 17 COVID-19 deaths. The state recorded 2,987 new confirmed cases of the coronavirus. This brought the seven-day average of new daily cases to a record-breaking 2,033. The governor says he plans to announce additional policies to address the surge in the coming days.
