Increased Covid Cases Could Impact School Openings


The steady and daily climb of COVID-19 Cases in Coos County continues to concern health officials. Last week, the Governor announced the matrix for opening schools in the fall. Public Health Epidemiologist Brian Leon says he expects to have plans from schools in the near future to review. Last week the Governor indicated counties that breached the six confirmed or presumptive cases in a week would not likely be able to have face-to-face schools or even hybrid option. It was that announcement that prompted the Coquille School Superintendent to issue a notice to parents that the district will operate its first trimester under a Comprehensive Distance Learning Model. School in Oregon normally begins after Labor Day in September.
