“We carefully developed the rules according to which our children will go to school on September 1. Together with the Ministry of Education and Science, we analyze the situation, including the foreign experience. We want to take the best practices and make the education process maximally comfort and safe for our children. Now, I can say that there will be obligatory temperature screening for all employees that come to work to the educational facilities and the obligatory temperature screening for children. With 37.2 temperature and higher, neither employees nor children may come to work or study,” he said.
Stepanov also stated that the parents who will bring children from school must wear medical masks. Moreover, the educational facilities should have antiseptics and use them under the control of the teachers.
“I hope that the next week all these rules will be developed and we will submit them for confirmation to inform everyone in advance how our children will study and enable the heads of the educational facilities to prepare for the school year,” the Healthcare Minister concluded.
Earlier, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danylov did not rule out the extension of distance learning in Ukrainian schools in the fall.
