Keeping in step with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s announcement that it will not be considering waivers to re-open schools, the City of Pasadena Department of Public Health will also adhere to guidance from the California Department of Public Health, which recommends that counties with case rates of COVID-19 at or above 200 cases per 100,000 residents do not extend waivers for the re-opening of classroom instruction for students in transitional kindergarten through sixth grade.

California health officials have barred school campuses from reopening this fall in counties that are on the state’s coronavirus monitoring list due to high case counts or other metrics reflecting the transmission the virus in the county.

“The science and data is guiding the decision-making and although discouraging, it’s in the best interest to help protect the health and safety of our children, teachers and staff and their families they go home to every night,” states Dr. Ying-Ying Goh.

This decision will be reconsidered once the case rate falls to the levels recommended by the State.
