California Gov. Hopes Schools Won’t Be Delayed by Virus

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Los Angeles County’s public health director is urging local school officials to prepare for a possible delay of classroom instruction next month.

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday said that is a setback he would like to avoid by convincing more people to wear masks and avoid gatherings to slow the spread of the coroanvirus.

Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer urged school districts to have a “plan b” because of the uncertainty around the spread of the virus. Newsom said school districts will decide for themselves if they can safely reopen. He said he hopes the school year is not delayed.
