Gov. Cox halts ‘Test to Stay’
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (KDXU) - Governor Spencer Cox is halting a program allowing COVID-19 testing, to help keep kids in school.
Governor Cox signed House Bill 183 into law Wednesday. The measure puts a hold on the state's "Test to Stay" program, which required a certain threshold of positive COVID-19 tests before a school could move to remote learning.
The new law requires schools to get permission from state lawmakers, the governor's office and the state school superintendent before remote learning is allowed.
