Covid disease rates have shot up to 13.5% among students and staff in the Los Angeles Unified School District, an almost 10-overlap ascend since before winter break, as officials said Friday they are pushing ahead to securely open classrooms for in-person learning on Tuesday.

Through Thursday the greater part of the locale’s 73,000 employees had submitted test results and around 30% of students, said Interim Supt. Megan Reilly, who visited Cochran Middle School in Arlington Heights on Friday for the circulation of free test packs given by the state. On Monday, Reilly required all students and staff to give test results prior to getting back to campus, and the locale’s Covid trying destinations have been open throughout the week.

“We’re attempting to do however much as could reasonably be expected to guarantee we keep up with the most noteworthy security guidelines in our schools,” she said. “We keep our schools more secure than the overall population. All things considered, I need everybody back in school.”

In L.A. Unified, the country’s second-biggest educational system, teachers are booked to show up on campus on Monday and students on Tuesday following a three-week winter break.
