GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - More elementary schools can reopen after Glenn County saw a decrease in coronavirus cases recently, according to Glenn County Public Health.

Since Glenn County is in the purple tier, schools like Hamilton and Mill Street elementary schools can apply for waivers to allow students back inside the classroom.

Glenn County Public Health says cases have to be less than 200 per 100,000 in the population for those waivers to be accepted.

For the past few weeks, three waivers have been on hold after the county saw a bit of spike.

Now the county is reporting fewer cases meaning Elk Creek, Hamilton, and Walden elementary schools The three waivers) can now reopen soon.

Under the waiver process, schools have to start with a staggered schedule.

"And so will it be the kindergartners to second grade. And we will kind of see how things are going with the schools and with the cases, we're hoping in just a couple of weeks we can open up to the other grades," said Dr. Jared Garrison.

Garrison adds the most coronavirus cases are coming from the Orland area.

Currently, Lake, Capay, and Orland elementary schools are under review. If approved they have to wait two weeks to reopen.

Garrison also says this waiver process has to be obeyed by every school or they risk losing funding.
