The Hopkins County Board of Education said Tuesday that students within the Hopkins County Schools (HCS) district would be learning remotely under the HCS at Home learning platform, which is the district's non-traditional instruction platform.

The board of education said its decision had been made due to the increase of COVID-19 cases within the community.

The switch to virtual will last until at least Friday, Jan. 4, 2021, according to the district's announcement.

Currently, the Hopkins County Health Department says 1,515 total positive cases of COVID-19 have been identified within the county, with a total of 44 COVID-19 deaths.

Hopkins County currently stands in Kentucky's COVID-19 Red Zone, indicating a critical rate of COVID-19 spread within the community. Only 17 of Kentucky's counties are now Orange, with the rest in the Red Zone.
