America’s largest county will not open K-12 schools until after the November election, at least. In an audio recording obtained by KFI reporter Steve Gregory, Los Angeles County Health Director Barbara Ferrer can be heard discussing with medical professionals, school administrators, and other education professionals the timeline of reopening schools.

According to reports from the Daily Wire:
“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,” Ferrer said. “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.”
Gregory said he contacted the health department directly after obtaining the audio to inquire when Ferrer said schools would reopen.
“I got a response back that is basically this word salad,” Gregory said. “It’s one big long paragraph of a word salad. It’s not even worth reading because all that it said was, ‘we’re reassessing all of the time, and as soon as we do the in-person learning with the high risk, high needs students, the special needs, we will reassess for everyone else.’ That was their official answer as to when the schools were going to reopen.”
“So the health department official statement does not jive with the health director,” Gregory continued. “What caught my attention on this was that she said election not just once, but she says it twice.”

Coronavirus cases and related deaths are both trending down in LA county. This begs the question, what exactly does reopening schools have to do with the election date? Are Democrats so terrified that sending children back to school could bode well for Trump they are willing to sacrifice an innocent child’s education?
