It should be noted that classes in the South American country were suspended in the temporary period from January 10 to 14, in order for the population to attend the vaccination points, in such a way that they comply with the complete immunization cycle.

In this sense, the entity specified that in those institutions with less than 85 percent of the staff, both students and teachers, of the complete anticovid scheme, only half of the students will be allowed.

On the other hand, the Minister of Education, María Brown, directed that if any of the school attendees begins to develop symptoms related to Covid-19, they are justified in not showing up to classes, at the same time they must notify their status to the school.

"Educational establishments are not a source of contagion or transmission of the virus, it is important that children and adolescents return to face-to-face classes since school activity entails academic, social and mental health benefits," said the educational authority, Brown .

The educational entity detailed that it will not be until next February 7 that the capacity of students in the face-to-face course is total; while the start of the 2022-2023 school year is scheduled for May 6 in the Ecuadorian regions of Costa and Galapagos.
