It was announced on May 12 that stay at home orders would be extended until late July depending on how things go. Stay at home orders were supposed to be lifted on May 15 but to be safer Public Health officials have pushed it back.

For the next 3 months they will slowly be lifting few restrictions to have more activities and more businesses to open. For that to happen LA county has to maintain the standard of deaths stopping in the last 14 days and no more than one case per 10,000 residents in the same period, so far no county has met these standards.

Some people are saying that this is a good thing because if the stay at home order is lifted to quickly then there could be a second wave of infections. “I think it’s fine that the LA county is extending the stay at home order because it will benefit everyone by being a lot safer.”, says sophomore Miguel Herrera.

Under the circumstances of COVID-19 the rest of the school year will be held through online classes and some students find this quite difficult. Since starting online classes some students are falling behind and are having a hard time focusing.

Being at home can either be a positive or a negative for some students, some enjoy being able to do work at home but others don’t see the point or have motivation. Usually for most students being at home is their place to relax and being at school is to learn so with this the don’t feel like doing their work or they get distracted to easily while trying to do work.

“I feel like online classes aren’t really doing much because not everyone is in them and it’s just a little weird to me to even be in one. I’m not really doing the work because to be honest the teachers really give a lot of work and just doesn’t make sense to me, like why are they giving work if there is a whole pandemic going on.” says sophomore, Yahir Martinez.

While other students think this is beneficial like sophomore Marvin Centeno, “The online classes are the best thing we can do in this unfortunate situation. It’s important that we stay mentally active so we don’t fall too far behind. I am dealing with the work as it goes because I honestly have nothing better to do. It’s a good way to pass time.”

USC will begin giving free tuition to students whose family income is below $80,000 starting in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. Carol Folt, president of USC, announced this Feb. 20.

“Our priority was to find a way to increase support for families all across the country who are faced with the high costs of paying for a college education,” said Folt about why this is being taken into place. She also believes that doing this will make their school have more diverse and talented undergraduates for upcoming school years.

“Its a good thing to do and gives them good publicity, all pros no cons. If I were to go to USC it would save me lots of money and I would be able to spend money on other things such as an apartment or staying in dorms, this would move up to my top choice for schools because of the free tuition.”, said sophomore Tiyrah Miller.
