Summary:

The Los Angeles County Office of Education has provided guidelines that provide early insight into changes that California schools could undergo when reopening for the fall. The guidelines were developed with input from county staffers, outside advisors, and representative from 23 county school systems. One county plans to use an outdoor eating area to expand classroom areas to comply with social distancing, operating under the premise that it is safer for children to eat at their desks in class rather than convene in a cafeteria setting.
