Recommendations for the reopening of schools are currently being reviewed by Delaware Secretary of Education Susan Bunting, after groups appointed to study effective ways to reopen were presented this week. The goal, Gov. John Carney said at a press briefing on Tuesday, is providing “as much in-person instruction as possible in a way that is safe.”
Several areas are being explored, including health and wellness of children who must be kept safe from the virus, academics, equity and transporting students in buses while keeping them proper distances apart, Carney said.
“We’re working with the school districts to see how we are going to educate our children,” he added.
Also during the press briefing, the governor said that during the past two weeks, more than 4,000 coronavirus tests have been administered.
