  • Education Government and CCAA unanimously agree to return to face-to-face class on January 10 and maintain quarantines, which go from 10 to 7 days

Students, teachers and non-teaching staff will return to classrooms in person on January 10 with a reduction in anti-Covid restrictions: those not vaccinated will spend 7 and not 10 days isolated as before.

Possibly, the only novelty of yesterday's summit between three ministries and 17 CCAA is a clue of what ends up happening this course: the elimination of quarantines.

A draft of the

Ministry of Health

proposes that in Infant and Primary it is not kept quarantine even if there is a contagion in the class and the children are not vaccinated.

That is, yes, confine the positive student, but not the class.

Some experts ask to monitor the symptomatic and support the measure of this draft in the, in general, low transmissibility and viral load of children together with the damages associated with coexistence, conciliation and mental health of the confinements themselves.

But that does not mean that minors are not contagious and, in a wave of infections, however slight, that opening measure has not yet been taken.

In the committees that advise Health there is discussion about maintaining quarantines in bubble groups or not. For this reason, yesterday, the draft was not chosen ... But it was not ruled out either. The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, said that, for now, the quarantines remain as they are for the rest of the population, which is already a step, because in the educational field the isolations lasted 10 days. But he also said that he will do what the

Alert Report

and the

Public Health Commission

propose , which are still debating the issue and are scheduled to meet this week. It was the Public Health Commission that issued on December 30 that general quarantines go from 10 to 7 days. The news could pivot on that Commission and the draft.
