SAN JUAN – The Secretary of the Department of Health, Lorenzo González Feliciano, announced this Wednesday that they are working to see how face-to-face classes begin in schools before the end of this year.
“We are more prepared than before, but it is always under discussion (the return to face-to-face classes). We will not be able to always be at home, ”said González Feliciano in a radio interview with Rubén Sánchez, on the program Early in the Morning on WKAQ 580.
“We have to be well prepared. Both public schools and private schools and universities, we have to be prepared to start, in some way, at some point ”with face-to-face classes, added González Feliciano.
“There have been advances to be able to celebrate face-to-face classes. There is a request from parents, teachers, particularly from universities and particularly private schools. Obviously they have greater resources (private schools) and have also made an investment in infrastructure to ensure that infections can be better controlled, ”said the Secretary of Health.
“We are working directly with the Secretary of Education (Eligio Hernández) for the surveillance part” to avoid contagion with Covid-19.
“We already have within the system, names of students, and parents and teachers to be able to monitor” the Covid-19, said González Feliciano.
“There are models, we have seen states that have started face-to-face classes,” said González Feliciano, who explained that there are places where classes are given some days of the week.
