Prince George’s County students won’t be back in the classroom until at least Feb. 1, says the county’s public schools chief.

Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Monica Goldson said during a conference call Wednesday that there will be no return to in-person learning before the second semester, citing higher-than-expected coronavirus infection rates and cases, WTOP reported.

“We’re just not in a place where we can [reopen] at this time,” she said. “We still have to monitor numbers. I can’t say that that’s a firm, set date, but that is our plan right now.”

Goldson expressed hope that a decline in coronavirus cases over the holidays could make February an attainable target date.
