All schools throughout the state, including Door and Kewaunee counties, will close as of next Wednesday in response to the coronavirus. Governor Tony Evers announced Friday that the mandated closure of K-12 schools will start March 18 with an anticipated reopening on April 6. The Governor stated that "the decision was not made lightly, but keeping our kids, our educators, our families, and our communities safe is a top priority as we continue our work to respond to and prevent further spread of the COVID 19 in Wisconsin." There have been 19 cases of the virus reported in the state as of Friday.
