Governor Roy Cooper will hold another COVID-19 update news conference on Wednesday, but he will not be making any announcements about the status of K-12 schools for the 2020-21 academic year.

The daily email to members of the media detailing the governor’s public schedule for the next day listed the coronavirus briefing that will begin at 3 p.m. in the state’s Emergency Operations Center in Raleigh.

“Tomorrow’s press conference will not include an announcement on how statewide K-12 public schools will open this coming school year,” the Governor’s Office said Tuesday evening.

Many local school systems had informed teachers and parents that an announcement from the governor would be coming this week.
