Officials Ask Oregonians To Help Keep Kids In Classrooms

As students return to Oregon classrooms for another school year, state health and education officials are asking people to do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19 so students can stay in school.  Appearing in a Tuesday press conference with Governor Kate Brown…Oregon Department of Education Director Colt Gill said everyone holds some responsibility to achieve a full-time in-person school year.  He asked Oregonians to wear a mask and get vaccinated to help achieve that goal.  Dr. Dana Braner, physician-in-chief at Oregon Health & Science University children’s hospital, said a return to in-person school is essential, not only for children’s education, but for their physical and mental health as well.  Although the school year has just begun, a few Oregon schools have already had to close or delay their start due to student and staff quarantines because of COVID-19 cases.
