“Next week” will arrive “suggestions and recommendations that can help school operators, public health operators of health companies and even families to find a way of balance to allow teaching in presence in safety”.
This was announced by the president of the Higher Institute of Health (Iss), Silvio Brusaferro, during the press conference on the analysis of the data of the Covid Monitoring of the control room.
“About school – recalled Brusaferro – there is a working group that involves the Higher Institute of Health, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education and the Regions” It is currently “There is a reflection precisely on how to govern the presence of any positive cases within individual school contexts and within individual classes, obviously guaranteeing safety with feasibility mechanisms”.
“This – anticipated the president Iss – it is possible to imagine, given the specificity of school contact, in some situations also through the targeted use of tampons that can allow, precisely due to the specificity of the contact, to be able to allow teaching in the presence“.
“This is a phase in which the Regions are discussing and this group is also verifying the feasibility of some organizational choices because – he pointed out – in addition to the principle aspect, it is also important to declare it operationally in the territorial context and in the school environment“.
In recent days, Minister Bianchi had reported the theme: “a technical table has already been convened and is already operational, composed of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Commissioner Structure and the representatives of all the Regions for the preparation of a shared protocol aimed at regulating in a homogeneous way on the national territory, the management of contacts in COVID-19 cases and the quarantine measures in the school environment in order to achieve what you desired, a common regulation throughout the national territory “.
