Statement in Response to Pressure for an Unsafe Return to Schools

LOS ANGELES — Let’s be clear: the pressure building to return to schools is political. It is not science. Returning to schools without proper health and safety protections will expose our children and our educators to COVID-19, putting families at risk of illness and death.
