Scores of Orange County elementary schools move to reopen classrooms

Bernadette Boden-Albala, founding dean of UC Irvine’s Public Health program, said if the virus trends continue to go down, then schools should start planning for reopening classrooms. She also said schools should give learning options to students and parents, stagger class days and implement a robust testing and contact tracing program. … UC Irvine epidemiologist Andrew Noymer said residents can expect 1,000 virus deaths by the end of the month.
