Hogan reverses order for MoCo private schools to move online
The governor issued an emergency order today that grants private and parochial schools the primary authority to decide whether to open in person this fall. On Friday, MoCo Health Officer Travis Gayles had ordered private schools to remain only online until Oct. 1.
In a press statement, Hogan argued, “The blanket closure mandate imposed by Montgomery County was overly broad and inconsistent with the powers intended to be delegated to the county health officer.” After Gayles’ Friday announcement, Hogan posted a statement on Twitter to express his strong disagreement.
