California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Friday announced that some schools in the state will remain online-only in the fall rather than reopening to in-person classes.
Schools that are in counties currently on the state’s coronavirus watch list do not meet Newsom’s criteria to reopen. That means that as of Friday, 80 percent of the state’s schools cannot reopen in the fall.
Those counties include Orange County, where the education board just this week approved reopening without masks or social distancing.
Masks are also required for teachers and students in third grade and above in schools that reopen, according to Newsom. Additional requirements include physical distancing, symptom checks, hand-washing stations and increased sanitation.
