For the first time in nearly a year, health officials gave the green light to LA County elementary schools to fully reopen.
Campuses will not immediately reopen in Los Angeles Unified, however. District officials and the teachers union are still in negotiations over what it might look like for students and teachers to head back to campuses for in-person instruction. The decision was made after LA County crossed a key threshold— a seven-day average of daily COVID-19 infections below 25 cases per 100,000 residents.
