Although it starts sending Anxiety about mobility that will mean going back to the classroom, Government He will extend DNU by a month That set health guidelines Almost unchanged. This means that the system of social, preventive, and mandatory distancing will continue. (DISPO) nationwide, This will be enabled Educational activities as determined by the Federal Education Council Which may be determined by each province Night restrictions, According to their epidemiological condition.
The new DNU will arrive until February 28, Although in the meantime he does not rule out creating new protocols for returning to the classes, That in some areas – such as city and county – are planned for 17 of next month.
DISPO puts across the country the umbrella of “new normality” though with Guidelines for social distancing, personal care, and specific restrictions. In the government they make this decision even though they realize it The situation is not stable. A complex experiment was actually tried during the first week of January when, due to the relaxation that occurred at the end of the year, A possible “curfew” was discussed This eventually led to local restrictions on trading.
The new “ghost” that flies over Casa Rosada is back to school, with the movement involved in students, parents and faculty. “We managed to prevent the January outbreak from turning into a second wave.”He was sentenced today in dialogue with Nation A very senior official, referring to a slight decrease in the number of cases that were registered in recent days. I add: Now, what will happen to students on the subways and buses? We have to make sure that the curve doesn’t explode. “
With this scenario spread, a new DNU is expected Enabling face-to-face classrooms according to the “standards” established by the Federal Education Council, It is the region that combines the Ministry of National Education with the ministers of education bags for the 23 provinces and the city.
The problem is that the Federal Education Council, in its recent decision, set a “traffic light” whereby only if very stringent epidemiological criteria are met, the risk is considered “low” (green) and a presence is enabled at all educational levels and modalities. Many provinces are hoping to adapt this traffic light and move to a more relaxed standard, Because current demands will not allow a return to the classroom in many parts of the country.

At Casa Rosada, they targeted the Horacio Rodriguez Larita subway, after the Buenos Aires head of government showed himself intent on starting classes on February 17th, staggered, with students in the classroom every day. “We still don’t understand how he will do that. There are things that they cannot answer.” Today a senior national official was slipping.
Beyond chicana The primary concern is that the contagion curve will be lost again. With the blows that this economic activity could bring and in the roadmap for the electoral year. Especially when Vaccine availability has entered an area of uncertainty.
Public passenger transportation is expected to be enabled in the new DNU for 30 activities deemed ‘essential’ And also for the faculty and students who must attend the classes.
The Night restrictions, Meanwhile, they will continue as before, subject to decisions by each province to control trading, official sources retreated.
Everything specified by DNU, however, can be quickly adjusted. “If the protocols change, the regulations will be re-evaluated. There are points that can be resolved later by an administrative decision from the Chief of the Bureau, “ The spokespersons explained.
