He explained that Guarenas and Guatire will be taken as a single axis because the number of infections of the disease will be added, even if it occurs in one or another city and will affect the operation of the schools.

Rojas stressed that the plan also provides for the activation of the Health Commission of the Educational Council of each campus that will help the adaptation of students to these prevention measures against covid-19 and that will be established in the rules of coexistence of each institution educational.
Another function of the Health committee is the creation of disinfection brigades of the campus, made up of parents and representatives, students and teachers because, as the official commented, it is not possible that the mayor's office can carry out this work every day in the 144 educational institutions.
“This plan will allow a diagnosis to be made to verify how the children are from the academic and psychosocial point of view and once we level them, we can enter the subject corresponding to the programs of the Ministry for Education; the first weeks will be for adaptation and once they are inside the classrooms, the agreement on coexistence in a pandemic will be generated to establish security measures within the classroom, ”he said.
