FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO/AP- Kentucky education and health officials plan to meet to discuss how to safely reopen schools during the coronavirus pandemic.
Interim Education Commissioner Kevin C. Brown said in a statement that the Kentucky Department for Public Health is working on protocols and will meet with the leaders at the Kentucky Department of Education on Friday to “hone the guidance.”
