In a work session of the Floyd County School Board on Friday morning, members announced plans to reopen all system schools except Coosa High, Coosa Middle and Pepperell Primary starting Monday.
Classes for the school system, which serves about 10,000 students, just began two days ago. In that time, the school system had accumulated 10 positive coronavirus cases, according to Northwest Georgia News. Due to those instances, more than 350 staff and students were asked to quarantine Thursday. However, Trump has issued new guidelines classifying teachers as critical infrastructure workers, which would allow them to continue to teach in the classroom after being exposed the virus, according to a Channel 2 News report.
