The first cases of coronavirus infection were detected in three schools in Poznań. By the end of the week, three classes will be learning remotely.
Coronavirus was detected in three facilities: Primary School No. 54, in the Building and Wood School Complex, and in the School and Kindergarten Complex No. 9 in Poznań.
At Primary School No. 54 in Distance Learning, there are two first grades in which cases of COVID-19 infection have been reported. As the director of the Poznań Sanitary Inspectorate informed, these are siblings attending two different classes.
One of the teachers who was not vaccinated has been quarantined, the other – previously vaccinated against COVID-19 – is under epidemiological supervision.
The teachers stay, the students stay in remote mode
In the Construction and Woodworking School Complex, a coronavirus was detected in a student of one of the first grades. Students have been quarantined and will be learning remotely until September 10. – Fortunately, this class unit started lessons that day at 10:40. It could be very well prepared: we sent the list of students to the Sanepid, the Sanepid verifies whether they are going to be quarantined or will be under epidemiological supervision. The same is the case with teachers, explains Tomasz Szłapiński, the director of the Complex of Building and Wood Schools in Poznań. And he adds: “99 percent of our school team are vaccinated. Teachers who have had lessons that day are supervised and may conduct lessons. The only restriction is that they must wear a mask at all times during the classes.
In the School and Kindergarten Complex No. 9, there was no need to switch to the remote mode. This is because the teacher who was diagnosed with the infection, although he showed up at the beginning of the school year, had no contact with the students.
On Tuesday, the Ministry of Health informed that in Poland – in the last 24 hours – 406 new coronavirus infections were confirmed, 19 of which in Greater Poland.
