The third most populous city in the state has 36 thousand students from the municipal network and 3.3 thousand permanent teachers and ACT´s. On February 8, 24 thousand returned to face-to-face activities.

According to the Municipal Contingency Plan for Education (PlanCon), the director of each school is responsible for communicating the parents of the students in the classes where the positive case was diagnosed of Covid-19. Thus, these places are closed and people who had contact with teachers with the disease are removed.

Based on these numbers and the cases in the teaching units, the following measures were determined by the municipality:

  • The class where the full professor or a student up to the 5th year is with Covid-19 will be absent for 14 days (including CEIs);
  • In the case of larger classes (above the 6th grade), with 50% of the teachers in the class positive, the teacher and students are away for 14 days;
  • In the case of positive or suspicious students (above the 6th year), only the infected student is absent for 14 days.
