The measure will only apply to final exam students in the coming weeks. They are the only ones who still go to school. Other classes follow homeschool because of that lockdown. This is expected to take until at least 9 February.
In the meantime, a study is underway into the susceptibility to the so-called ‘British variant’ among school students. Until the results of that investigation, the measure will be in effect, sources say.
There have been concerns in schools about letting go of the 1.5 meter distance among students. Last Monday, the General Education Union (AOb) reported that less than a third of the teachers surveyed still felt safe at school.
In recent months it has become increasingly clear that high schools also play a role in the spread of corona. It was previously believed that this was not so serious. Last Friday, OMT member and pediatrician Károly Illy told Nieuwsuur that this assumption was a “mistake”. After the 1.5 meter was released in July, he advocated a 1 meter distance between high school students.
