BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Two Butte County elementary schools have been granted approval to reopen for in-person learning after submitting their waiver applications.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued the COVID-19 and Reopening In-Person Learning Framework on July 17, 2020.

Since then, several elementary schools within Butte County have submitted waiver applications to open in-person instruction under specified conditions.

Now the county is saying since the COVID-19 case rate was lower this week, Public Health is granting approval for two waivers.

Paradise Adventist Elementary and Chico Oaks Adventist Elementary School have met the requirements for in-person instruction in alignment with State guidance and standards, according to the county.

Public Health says its staff will work with these schools to determine their re-opening date. All other school waiver applications are still being processed and Butte County Public Health staff remain in communication with the applicants.

As of Tuesday, Sept. 22, the updated weekly case rate and test positivity rate for Butte County have gone below the Tier 1 threshold. Click here to read more.

Friday was a quieter weather day for much of northern California with a wide range of temperatures from morning to afternoon, and wind that wasn't quite as strong. Saturday will also be quiet, but much higher fire danger returns Sunday.
