NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  COVID-19 continues to prompt school related closures across Middle Tennessee.

Beginning Tuesday, Stewart County in the mid-state’s Northwest corner sent all 2,000 of its students home for two weeks of remote learning.

On the school system’s website, administrator’s explained the closure was necessary “due to the increase in community numbers over the past few days.”

WKRN on Monday reported the Murfreesboro Blackman High football team and cheerleaders have been sidelined for two weeks following confirmed coronavirus cases.

Williamson, Maury and Davidson counties have all announced their own virus related school closures in recent days.
