The school year has obviously been different due to the coronavirus pandemic as it was still up in the air exactly how long it would be until the kids get back into the classroom. Well Orange County health chief Director Dr. Clayton Chau told the county’s Board of Supervisors that Orange County schools will be allowed to reopen for in-class instruction next Tuesday (9/22). The county has already approved 140 elementary schools to reopen through the state’s waiver process. Last week, Orange County moved from the state’s purple tier to the red tier, which allowed for churches, theaters, and other indoor operations to resume at limited capacity. Theaters, restaurants, museums, and churches are restricted to 25% capacity. Meanwhile, shopping centers can now open at 50% capacity, and gyms can operate at 10% capacity.
