Covid-19 has been a challenge in public health since the declaration of a pandemic in 2020. A year later, security measures against Covid when schools reopening pose unprecedented challenges.
We are in the midst of a ‘new normality’ dominated by new sanitary practices, personal protection and prevention. So, parents, educational personnel and students will have to internalize the protocols established in their educational center to function in the midst of the crisis that still persists.
How to neutralize Covid when schools reopening?
Provisions that parents should take when sending their children to school.
There is a fairly widespread basic protocol to reduce the risk of getting Covid-19 when schools reopening to face-to-face classes. This consists of three stages:
- Before leaving home. Parents should measure the child’s body temperature and check for breathing problems. If there are no symptoms, make sure you use the mask correctly, which should cover the nose and mouth; In addition, you should carry a hand sanitizer gel with you and use frequently.
- On the way to school. It is essential to wear a mask during transport and wash your hands when getting out of it.
- At school. Avoid physical contact when greeting, do not remove the mask, keep your physical distance; do not share cutlery, food or drinks. Teachers should verify that there is adequate ventilation in enclosed spaces (preferably open windows).
