LAUSD says it will require weekly testing for students, teachers, and employees regardless of vaccination status. On top of mandatory masks and social distancing, those regular tests serve as an added safety measure against the Delta variant, which is now surging in LA County. Parents must also decide by the end of this week whether to send their kids back to school or continue remote education.
