Ouachita, Monroe schools have remained open, nearby districts closed for COVID: Here's why

Despite school closures due to the rise of COVID cases attributed to the omicron variant, Ouachita Parish Schools and Monroe City Schools stay open.

Meanwhile, other districts across Northeast Louisiana have temporarily shut their doors because not enough teachers and/or students are healthy enough to warrant face-to-face instruction. Just weeks after the start of the semester, Lincoln, Union and East Carroll parishes announced COVID-19-related school closures this week.
