The educational community is concerned about the evolution of the contagions. | T.Ayuga
The return to school after the Christmas holidays was relatively ‘normal’ with face-to-face teaching across all years. The spread of coronavirus in society has moved to schools after a few weeks of family and social contacts, although the incidence rates in education are still much lower than the general ones. However, throughout the education sector there is a fear that infections will continue to proliferate in the coming weeks, which could further complicate the processing of sick leave and staff substitutions, which are already problematic. The Ministry of Education reported yesterday that 300 teachers of public education are on leave for COVID, the vast majority for being positive, although there are also those for being close contact and not being vaccinated.
