(WXYZ) — As coronavirus cases once again surge in the state, multiple school districts have stopped in-person learning or put it on hold.

Wyandotte Public Schools will start remote-only learning until after Christmas break due to COVID-19, the district announced on Tuesday night.

During an online board meeting, school officials said they had at least one positive case at every single school.

Roosevelt High school reportedly has 20 cases, the largest K-12 outbreak in the state.

Farmington Public Schools' Board of Education voted to have elementary schools remain with remote learning until at least Jan. 11.

The state recently reported 50 new school and college COVID-19 outbreaks.
