California Governor Gavin Newsom said Tuesday that power needs to be done to prevent the coronavirus “on the table” of students aged 12 and up and his office is discussing it with school districts across the state.
“We are working closely with their staff to understand the challenges and obstacles,” Newsom told reporters, according to Sacramento Bee. “There are issues that we are working on that are specific and resolved by the district. And so we are in the process of judging a major focus, as we said at the table, but there is no announcement to be made today.”
Newsom issued an official statement last month requiring teachers to inject or take coronavirus tests as well as a global system for students and teachers.
