Los Angeles County Health Director, Barbara Ferrer, saying the reopening timeline for Los Angeles County Schools would come sometime after the November 2020 election.

Barbara Ferrer was on a conference call with local educators, school nurses and other groups discussing the upcoming flu season, when the statement below was made.

“We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving either to Tier 2 [of California’s reopening plan] or to reopening K-12 schools at least…until after the election, after, you know, in early November. If we just look at the timing of everything, it seems to us the most realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re gonna be where we are now…until…we are done with the elections.”
