Broward and Miami-Dade will begin moving into a Phase 2 of reopening from COVID-19 — with the goal of eventually reopening schools for in-person classes in both counties.
The earliest that Broward so far has talked of reopening schools is October, while Miami-Dade schools may decide as early as next week when they’ll reopen campuses to students. Still, entering Phase 2 is a crucial step for in-person schooling to take place in both counties, which have seen their rates of COVID-19 infections fall, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Friday.
“Of course, the most significant aspect of that is it really clears the pathway for in-person instruction to resume,” he said.
Palm Beach County, the first county in the region to move to Phase 2, already plans to start offering in-person teaching on Sept. 21.
