UPDATE: Bemidji School Board COVID-19 meeting cancelled

The Bemidji School Board was planning to meet Thursday, but the meeting was cancelled due to registration issues with the webinar.

The webinar was produced by the Minnesota School Boards Association, the Association of Minnesota Counties and the League of Minnesota Cities, and would be focused on how a community can prepare for this viral outbreak.

The Minnesota Department of Health confirmed that Minnesota now has five cases of COVID-19, as of Wednesday, March 11.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says the virus is now considered a pandemic.
