Remote learning classes at East Los Angeles College are expected to be extended into the fall semester of 2021. Since April, classes at ELAC have been online as COVID-19 pandemic continues to go on.
Despite these challenging times, the new series on Netflix, “Social Distance,” shows a new way of making television entertaining and relevant to current times. The series is a demonstration of the problems of reacting to a crisis too hastily.
