BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner just sent a message to the Palm Beach County School Board: you may want to hold off opening schools after the county moves to “phase 2” of the Florida reopening plan.

Palm Beach County remains at “Phase One.” The School Board this week announced that it intends to open schools roughly one week after Palm Beach county moves to “phase two.”

Mayor Kerner doesn’t think that’s a good idea.


“What I would say,” said Kerner, “is that once we get into phase two, the school district needs to evaluate the (county’s) metrics on an ongoing basis (to make sure it’s safe for schools to open).”


The concern: opening schools within days of businesses reopening will lead to a new surge in cases.

“I have fears of opening up two massive institutions (schools and businesses) and I hope we can find a way to stagger those two approaches.”
