‘We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving either to Tier 2 [of California’s reopening plan] or to reopening K-12 schools at least…until after the election, after, you know, in early November’

EXCERPT:

FERRER: “We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier two or to reopening K-12 schools at least through -- at least until after the election, after, you know, in early November. Like when we just look at the timing of everything it seems to us a more realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re going to be where we are now, until we get after, until we -- we are done with the elections.”
