In a press conference, Enrique Alfaro said that given the growing number of active cases and hospitalizations, conditions must be created to guarantee the return to school at the end of August.
“The whole agenda that we are designing for evaluation and adjustments in health measures is focused on creating conditions so that our children and young people can return to the classroom,” he said.
Alfaro said that, through the Economic Reactivation Table, a bag of extraordinary resources will be available to support the personnel who work in these shifts and activities with the payment of their salaries.
