LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Schools in both Bath and Franklin Counties will be returning to virtual instruction as more than half of the state’s 120 counties are in the red zone on Kentucky’s coronavirus map.

Bath County will be suspending hybrid learning and going 100% online for the entire month.
The district’s superintendent says after school activities, athletics, and meal delivery will all be suspended the week of November 2nd. The board has allowed him to reconsider those activities each week if the county is no longer in the red status category.
