Primary schools and childcare can reopen from February 8th. In recent days, everything was already pointing in this direction, and this afternoon the interim government made the decision at the Catchways meeting. Primary schools and childcare have been closed since mid-December.
Minister Slube described the reopening as “good news for the children, parents and teachers.” He has shown an understanding of the concerns about him. That’s why the locker also takes additional measures to maximize safety.
For example, teacher quick tests will be used. The entire class must also be isolated for five days if the student has tested positive.
The Outbreak management team wrote in advice to Cabinet yesterday that schools and shelters could open, but relaxation has a “real risk” to the number of hospital admissions and IC.
The advice also shows that an unknown number of OMT members are against the opening of schools. But OMT writes that most realize there is “room for perspective and some relaxation”.
