Schools issue warning: Coronavirus testing and tracing are needed before campuses reopen

Los Angeles Times |

“Opening our schools will not be as easy as separating desks or placing pieces of tape on the floor,” Los Angeles Supt. Austin Beutner and San Diego Supt. Cindy Marten said in their statement. 

“A robust system of COVID-19 testing and contact tracing will need to be in place before we can consider reopening schools. Local health authorities, not school districts, have to lead the way on testing, contact tracing and a clear set of protocols on how to respond to any occurrence of the virus.”
