NASSAU COUNTY, Long Island — All K-12 schools in Nassau County will close for two weeks, county executive Laura Curran announced Sunday.

The move comes as officials grapple with at least 79 cases of coronavirus, making Nassau the county with the second highest number of cases in the state.

The school closures will begin on Monday and last through at least March 29.

While schools will be shuttered for instruction, Curran said the buildings can still be used by teachers and grab-and-go lunches will be distributed to students.
