Children in Connecticut are unlikely to head back to school this spring as the state works with school districts about closing through the end of the 2019-20 academic year amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont’s office is reportedly in negotiations with public schools statewide to determine the best strategy to keep students at home to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

As of Monday, April 6, there were 6,906 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Connecticut, including 3,719 in Fairfield County. There were 1,231 new cases reported overnight.
