An audio clip released on Wednesday captures Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer stating that she believed K-12 schools wouldn’t be open again until after the election in November.
A KFI News radio reporter, Steve Gregory, stated that he was sent an audio recording of a conference call between Ferrer and “a collection of school nurses, school administrators, other education and medical professionals,” which was the topic of his program.

“We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or to reopening K-12 schools at least until after the election, in early November,” Ferrer said. “When we look at the timing of everything, it seems to us a more realistic approach to this would be to think that we’re going to be where we are now until we are done with the election.”
The recording was featured on KFI’s “John and Ken Show,” where the co-hosts of the high-wattage afternoon drive program questioned whether Dr. Ferrer was manipulating the date to influence the Presidential race.
Gregory stated that he contacted the health department and asked when Ferrer said schools would reopen.
“I got a response back that is basically this word salad,” Gregory said. “It’s one big long paragraph of a word salad. It’s not even worth reading because all that it said was, ‘we’re reassessing all of the time, and as soon as we do the in-person learning with the high risk, high needs students, the special needs, we will reassess for everyone else.’ That was their official answer as to when the schools were going to reopen.”
“So the health department official statement does not jive with the health director,” Gregory went on to say. “What caught my attention on this was that she said election not just once, but she says it twice.”
Gregory also tried to get a direct comment from Ferrer herself, but that was a no go.
As if we needed more evidence the left was taking advantage of the coronavirus pandemic for their own political purposes, right? This thing is looking more and more suspicious as time goes on, isn’t it?
