In-person classes for grade-level students will return in Mexico starting on Monday, June 7, the Public Education Secretariat (SEP) announced Friday, May 28.
The face-to-face classes to end the 2020-2021 school year will be conducted in accordance with all necessary covid-19 protocols, and will be voluntary and staggered in order to maintain social distancing measures.
Over the weekend, all remaining unvaccinated public and private education workers in the country were administered or offered the administration of covid vaccines to ensure their own safety and that of their students, the SEP said in a statement on its website.
SEP Secretary Delfina Gómez also issued a statement to the parents of students notifying them that all students must present an affidavit stating that they do not currently have covid or covid symptoms.
In-person classes in Mexico were suspended last year because of the covid.-19 pandemic.
