Los Angeles County elementary school campuses are cleared to reopen for the first time in nearly a year because of dropping coronavirus rates, County Supervisor Janice Hahn announced late Monday afternoon.

Hahn made her announcement in a tweet, saying, “L.A. County has officially reached the State’s threshold for reopening elementary schools. Starting tomorrow, schools can reopen” if they have submitted and posted the necessary paperwork with county and state officials.

A spokeswoman for Hahn said her comments were based on a conversation between a staff health specialist and county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer.

State and county officials did not immediately confirm the announcement on the Presidents Day holiday Monday.
