The Muhlenberg County Public Schools district said Thursday that all schools within the district would be switching to an all-virtual learning format as of Monday, Nov. 16.

District officials say the switch to virtual will continue through Friday, Dec. 4, at which time the situation will be re-evaluated based on the county's current COVID-19 numbers.

According to MCPS, the decision to go virtual was made based on a recommendation made by the local health department due to the rising number of staff and student quarantines within the district.

With a current COVID-19 incidence rate of 33.6 new daily cases per 100,000 population, Muhlenberg County is in Kentucky's COVID-19 Red Zone. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has asked all schools within the COVID-19 Red Zone to practice virtual learning.

A list of all schools within the MCPS district can be found on the district's website.
