Oregon Gov. Kate Brown Orders All Public Schools to Reopen by April 19

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) is issuing an executive order directing all Oregon public schools to reopen for in-person learning by April 19.

“Today, I announced my executive order to return Oregon public school students to the classroom,” Brown tweeted. “The science is clear: with proper safety measures in place, there is a low risk of COVID-19 transmission in school.”

In a statement issued Friday, Brown said school districts will return to full or hybrid in-person instruction by March 29 for kindergarten through fifth grade, and April 19 for sixth grade through 12th grade.

Schools would be allowed to offer distance learning in defined circumstances, such as if community transmission rates warrant a transition, per state or local public health directives.
