LA County health official recorded saying K-12 schools won’t open until after election

Wednesday, audio of Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer saying she doesn’t expect K-12 schools to open in her county until after the November election surfaced.

During the conference call, Ferrer says “We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or to reopening K-12 schools at least until after the election, in early November.”

She adds “When we look at the timing of everything, it seems to us a more realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re going to be where we are now until we are done with the election.”

The audio was played on KFI’s “John and Ken Show.”
