Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) activated members of the National Guard on Tuesday to help with COVID-19 testing in schools, as education facilities struggle to test students and teachers amid staff shortages.

Up to 200 members of the Massachusetts National Guard have been activated to help with testing in the state’s public K-12 schools, Baker’s office announced. The governor said the move will provide “additional staffing support” for school testing programs.
