The government has removed almost all measures against COVID in educational centres. Incidence still high and virus skyrocketed among older population but back to school pre-pandemic period, Ventilation is reinforced, which has proven to be very effective, but in turn removes the 1.2m safety distance that the elderly had to maintain in class until now, bubble They can be dismantled except in the dining room, there are no longer fixed seats on the school bus and parents can go back to schools and participate in face-to-face teaching.

Restrictions have been eased throughout the school year. September started with the normal ratio (25 students in kindergarten and primary 30 in that and 35 in high school); Masks disappeared from patios in February and became mandatory indoors in April. Meanwhile, the quarantine has been ended. public health commission A new protocol was approved last week that was not publicized. Here are the changes:

no split

safety distance expires 1,2 Meter in the classes which were to be maintained by the students of Primary, ESO, Baccalaureate and Final Years of FP. Therefore, it returns to normal orbits. In dining rooms and spaces capable of eating, yes, separation should be placed, but there will be no fixed space anymore.

only in the dining room

stable coexistence group or bubble into which infant students were divided and the first years of primary were broken up as its members could now interact with each other outside and indoors, except in the dining room, where they took turns and their own take the place of. In this course they could already mingle but only outside.

face to face tutorial

Till now parents were asked to contact the school over phone or E-mail and that they enter the building only if the Faculty considers so. That is, they were told to avoid leaving. Now “families are allowed to visit both indoor and outdoor.” Face-to-face tutoring with families in well-ventilated interior spaces also returns, although “it is recommended that priority be given to those who are outside”. This is the end of Zoom Meetings.

school bus

There will no longer be a fixed seat for students in school transport. It is still recommended to prefer active transport (by foot or by bicycle) to avoid sharing closed spaces.


Before hand hygiene “frequently and carefully” at least at the entrance and exit of the center, before and after the courtyard, after eating and always after going to the toilet and in any case at least five times a day Cleanliness was requested. Now only “correct” hand hygiene is requested.


In February it was stopped making it mandatory outdoors and in April it was removed indoors. But some continue to use it and the protocol, in fact, states that “stigmatization of those with risk conditions for Covid-19 or by personal judgment, continues to use masks, even if mandatory.” Yes or no


There will no longer be a need to set up entrances and exits in a staggered schedule, nor will there be a need to organize entertainment times, patios and dining rooms in shifts.


Going out to the surrounding environment will prevail, but now there will be no need to leave empty rows of seats among students.


It is ensured that the spaces are to be disinfected at least once a day, although the toilets no longer have to be cleaned twice or thrice. The dining room, which earlier had to be checked between shifts, will now be done as if it was not a pandemic.


This measure has been strengthened. Earlier, cross ventilation was recommended “if possible” on a permanent basis and is now mandatory. Facilities and corridors must be ventilated for 15 minutes at the beginning and at the end of the day, during recess and between classes. Mechanical ventilation or air purifiers may be used. In activities that involve shouting, singing or exercising, it is recommended to go outside or make classes more ventilated.
