Opening Day For High Schools In Los Angeles Are Met With Lines Around The Block With Kids Waiting To Show Negative COVID Tests To Get In
Hundreds of thousands of Los Angeles Unified School District students returned to classrooms Monday, but some were met with long lines as they arrived on campus due to an extended process of verifying requiring COVID-19 tests.
Many parents took to social media to complain about long delays on campuses, contending the Daily Pass app that allows students to quickly report any health issues and show proof of COVID test results had crashed. Others said many other parents simply didn’t know how to use the system, causing delays.
Long lines of students were seen outside John Marshall, Narbonne and Los Angeles high schools as students waited to be screened so they could enter the campus. Another campus had a long line of students, who apparently had not been tested in advance, waiting to undergo rapid COVID testing so they could enter classrooms.
