Could Minnesota schools stay closed for the rest of the academic year, as the governor of Virginia ordered in that state?   Governor Tim Walz says:

“As the situation evolves, it may need to become necessary to do that.”

Walz says he’s trying to project forward as much as possible because uncertainty is what’s stressful for people. Minnesota schools are closed until at least Friday as districts put plans in place for distance learning. The Education Minnesota teachers union says virtual classes are under way in a few school districts.
