BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The Bangor school department, city health officials and community leaders will focus Friday on school and childcare safety for the upcoming school year.

They’re holding a news conference at 1 p.m. about reopening schools.

It comes the same day as the Maine Department of Education is scheduled to release its county-by-county color designations.

The red, yellow, green designations are based on the prevalence of COVID-19.

They'll help guide schools about whether to pursue in-class instruction or continue remote learning.

Friday’s news conference will be live streamed on the City of Bangor’s Facebook page.
