Brevard County school closures have been extended through the beginning of May.

Following recommendations from the Florida Department of Education, the Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Brevard Public Schools announced late Monday that schools will be closed until at least May 4.

Closures through April 15 had previously been announced as a precaution to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

State education officials said closures would be reassessed every two weeks in coordination with health agencies.
