According to Seeduc, the facilities of the Colégio Estadual Professor Maria Terezinha de Carvalho Machado, in Praça Seca, west of Rio de Janeiro, were sanitized and all team members with symptoms removed.
As of this Friday (23), the school will remain open for the delivery of didactic materials and student food kits. In a note, Seeduc highlighted that “it reaffirms its commitment to the health of its professionals and students”.
Sepe-RJ (State Union of Education Professionals) reported that the suspension of activities due to positive coronavirus tests at the unit “is not surprising”. According to those responsible for the union, the members of Sepe-RJ voted “massively” for the maintenance of a strike and the non-return of face-to-face activities in state schools.
