After the two days of hassle between parents and the authorities, it is now announced that schools and institutions will not reopen until they show that all guidelines are met. Minister of Children and Education Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil (S) said at a press conference on Wednesday that if day care and schools are not ready until April 15 they should not reopen.
Like the rest of the government and health authorities, Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil has been criticised after it was announced that children from the 5th grade and below should return to schools and day care centres immediately after Easter.
Several mayors have been, among others, saying that there are a lot of challenges that need to be resolved before the reopening – and that it cannot be achieved.
But Pernille Rosenkrantz-Theil assured at a press conference that schools and institutions should not open until all health guidelines are met.
The guidelines for the schools and institutions mean, among other things, that there must be two meters between the tables in the classrooms and that there must be a very large focus on hand hygiene. There are also specific recommendations for dining. If schools and institutions can not meet these guidelines than we will present another solution instead of reopening.
