Reopening Protocols for Institutes of Higher Education
The Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services is adopting a staged approach, supported by science and public health expertise, to limit activities permitted at Institutes of Higher Education until circumstances permit safe opening. Colleges and universities in Los Angeles County and in the City of Long Beach will not be able to resume all inperson academic instruction, at this time. Institutions may continue to offer in-person training and instruction for only for essential workforce whose required activities cannot be accomplished through virtual learning. All other academic instruction must continue to be done via distance-learning.
