School Closures in Illinois

School closures have begun throughout various states across the country in the fight against the spread of Coronavirus.

Illinois public schools will close as COVID-19 cases have now reached 46. CPS also issued its own guidance, that includes suspending sports and limiting visitor access to school buildings. Illinois schools will close beginning Tuesday March 17th and stay closed through March 30.

It is expected that this preventative action will be replicated across states facing similar situations with the Coronavirus.
