Kindergartens will not open on May 10 like the other grades as previously announced by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
The announcement issued earlier by the ministry emphasizes how the infants remain closed because -apart from the epidemiological data- according to the committee of infectious diseases, the preventive measures (use of a mask and self-test) are applied in the other structures that open (Primary-High Schools -High school), can not be applied at ages 0-4 years.
Experts will assess the impact of the school opening and reconsider opening the nursery in about 10 days. According to exclusive information from Newsbomb, the opening of the nurseries will take place on May 24.
The minister, Domna Michailidou, also referred to the issue. As she said, “the decisions will be judged by the epidemiological data”.
According to Ms. Michailidou, infectious disease specialists are wary of opening daycare centers now, for two reasons.
First, is that experts are waiting for the imprint from the opening of activities and
Secondly has to do with mutations as it is believed that young children due to mutations can cause outbreaks
The Minister of Development and Investments, Adonis Georgiadis, referring to the opening of the kindergartens, stressed today to ANT1 that there is a reservation, as he said as the age decreases, there is the fear of discipline.
