- Business Insider 10:09July 14, 2020As Trump pressures schools to reopen in the fall, California's 2 largest school districts say they're going to start online only in the fallThe Los Angeles and San Diego unified school systems said they'll be starting the fall semester off online in a joint statement.
The announcement comes after President Donald Trump said he'd pressure states to reopen in-person classes in the fall.
The two districts have a combined total of 700,000 students, according to NPR.
On Monday, public health officials in Los Angeles County announced 2,593 new cases of COVID-19 and 13 new deaths.
Other counties, like Orange County, California, voted on Monday to reopen schools without measures requiring masks or increased social distancing.

"One fact is clear: those countries that have managed to safely reopen schools have done so with declining infection rates and on-demand testing available. California has neither. The skyrocketing infection rates of the past few weeks make it clear the pandemic is not under control," the statement read.

- Business Insider 03:30July 14, 2020Earthquakes in Southern California last year increased the chances of 'the big one' on the San Andreas fault, research suggestsMario Tama/Getty Images The Ridgecrest earthquakes that struck Southern California last July may have increased the chances of a large quake along the San Andreas fault, new research shows.
The San Andreas fault line runs through 800 miles of the California coast. A major earthquake — referred to as "the big one" — would devastate Los Angeles and other cities.
The chances of such a disaster are still low, but the researcher who calculated them wants residents to be prepared.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. This time last year, a series of powerful earthquakes struck Southern California, culminating in a 7.1-magnitude temblor and a set of aftershocks. Buildings caught fire. Gas lines ruptured, and power went out. Deep fissures opened in the ground. A rockslide blocked off a highway.

- Business Insider 22:39July 13, 2020California's two biggest school districts plan to remain remote in the fallDavid McNew/Getty Images The Los Angeles and San Diego public school districts announced all of their students will continue learning remotely come August, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Together, the two school districts enroll a combined 825,000 students, and LA is the second-largest in the country. They are the largest school districts to eschew any kind of return to the classroom. New York City, the country's largest school district with over 1 million students, plans to attempt a staggered, partial reopening.
In a July 13 statement, Austin Beutner, the superintendent of Los Angeles Unified School District said: "There's a public health imperative to keep schools from becoming a petri dish."
Last week, 83% of 18,000 United Teachers Los Angeles members polled said that schools should not reopen in any capacity in August.
Coronavirus cases in California are surging, and Beutner noted reopening schools could further escalate the outbreak. "A 10-year-old student might have a 30-year-old teacher, a 50-year-old bus driver, or live with a 70-year-old grandmother. All need to be protected."
The decision to keep students learning at home comes as the Trump administration pushes for schools to reopen across the country. Some states, such as Florida, are mandating a return to the classroom in the fall for the sake of the economy.
