The city authorities of Lviv have decided that all schools in the city will operate normally in the yellow level of epidemic danger. At the same time, teachers must have a vaccination certificate, a certificate that they have recovered from coronavirus in the last six months, or a negative PCR test. City mayor Andriy Sadovy reports, according to the press service of the City Council.
“We had to make a Solomonic decision: all schools in Lviv will work, but teachers must show either a vaccination certificate, a certificate that they have recovered from coronavirus in the last six months, or a negative PCR test. We cannot unbalance the educational process, especially when we don’t know what awaits us in a month or two,” Sadovy said.
According to the mayor, the city can always switch to online learning, but since distance education has no effect, it is now worth using every day of face-to-face education, adhering to all safety standards.
He added that he was aware of the government's requirement for schools (that only those schools where 80% of teachers are vaccinated can work), but said that this was “impossible because Ukraine has started vaccination quite late compared to other countries in the EU.”
As it was reported earlier, Ukraine will move to the yellow zone of epidemiological security on Thursday, September 23.
