NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Public Schools will remain with distance learning for at least another week, schools officials announced Thursday.
School officials said the COVID trends are promising and that they would revisit the issue in a week.
Currently, all New Orleans Public Schools students are attending class remotely due to a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases in the City following the holidays.
New Orleans Public Schools says their goal is to get students safely back into the class room. This press conference should shed some light on when they might happen.
The number of hospitalizations statewide has been slowly dropping since reaching a peak of 2,069 on Jan. 8. That's following a similar trend in testing positivity and new cases.
