LA County schools chief recovering from COVID-19


Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools Debra Duardo, who has been quarantining since last week after contracting the coronavirus, gave a positive update about her recovery on Thursday, Jan. 14.

“It’s been a difficult 10 days, but I’m happy to say that I am finally seeing major improvements in my health,” Duardo tweeted. “I have an incredibly strong team and I am grateful for the outpouring of support I’ve received. Thank you for all the well wishes. Stay safe & be well.”

The schools chief had tested positive for the coronavirus on Jan. 4 after experiencing mild symptoms, she announced on social media last week. She went on to say that she was isolating and in quarantine.

“I’m sharing this as a reminder that we are all vulnerable and we must work together to stop the spread. Be safe,” she said at the time.

Duardo, who was appointed to her position in 2016, could not immediately be reached for further comment Thursday.

The superintendent is in charge of L.A. County’s Office of Education, the nation’s largest regional education agency. The office provides services to support the county’s 80 school districts, which serve more than 2 million preschool and school-aged children.

L.A. County is currently the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic. The county has reported more than 975,000 coronavirus cases and over 13,000 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
