BOSTON (WHDH) – With the coronavirus pandemic worsening each day, Gov. Charlie Baker said Thursday that residents can expect a decision on extending school closures, as well as the statewide stay-at-home advisory, in the near future.
In late March, Baker extended the stay-at-home advisory through May 4 and ordered all schools to remain closed until May 4 as well.
When asked Thursday about the future of the school year, Baker simply said, “We’ll make a decision about schools sometime soon.”
Prior to Baker’s State House news conference, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that he was extending his state’s stay-at-home advisory until May 15.
