JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Coronavirus cases continue to rise across the county and in Wisconsin, but decisions about plans for the fall still need to happen.

On Tuesday, the School District of Janesville will present and vote on plans for the fall. In a survey, the majority of parents in the district said they feel comfortable letting their children attended in-person classes.

However, there are still concerns from doctors about students returning to schools for in-person instruction, because the virus is so contagious.

"You go to school, you're going to come in contact with more people," Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN Chief Medical Correspondent said. "So even if they're transmitting at a lower rate than adults, it may get washed out or increased essentially because they have more contacts."

The Janesville School Board said its committed to protecting the health and safety of both students and staff.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. The public is encouraged to watch live on the district's YouTube channel. To access that, click here. The meeting will also be recorded.
