SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- On Friday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a list of conditions that would allow the state's schools to open their campuses to physical instruction.

While attainable, 32 of the state's 52 counties are facing an uphill race to meet those requirements and put students back in the classroom by their scheduled fall start date.

In order for a school district to return to in-person instruction, San Diego County would need to be off the California Monitoring List for 14 consecutive days.

Under the state's metrics, counties are placed on the list after any one of four thresholds is met for three days in a row. One of those thresholds is excessive case rates over a two-week period.

San Diego County first crossed the case rate metric on June 30 with 105 cases per 100,000 residents.

At some local schools, there's time for the county to get itself off the list and stay below the threshold for the required time. Other districts will be watching closely as their target dates come up in a few days. Some districts have announced they will start the school year on a distance learning program.
