In schools it is compulsory to use a mask and during breaks in regional units that have been included in the “orange” and “red” levels, as announced by Deputy Minister of Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias . In informal information from the Ministry of Education, it was clarified that in the context of physical education (gymnastics), the use of a mask is still not provided for in all schools in the country. The same was said by Mr. Hardalias.
However, the full picture of the use of the mask by the students has not been clarified, as with the new data, they will be asked to wear a mask for approximately 6 hours. For this reason, a “break in the use of the mask” is sought in schools. For this reason, the Ministry of Education turned to the relevant committee of scientists for relevant instructions.
This initiative comes after the announcement of the compulsory use of the mask and during breaks in schools belonging to regional units of the country which have joined the third (orange) and fourth (red) level of measures, preventive measures and rules to limit the spread of the coronavirus. In addition, a new joint ministerial decision is expected which introduces new horizontal preventive measures in particular the compulsory use of the mask during school breaks in 3rd and 4th level.
