School leaders and municipalities are currently working on high pressure to reopen schools.
We do not use children as guinea pigs.
This morning, a director of the National Board of Health, Søren Brostrøm, stated at a press conference.
After Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen (S) briefed on Monday evening about the gradual opening of Denmark, which includes, among other things, the reopening of day-care institutions and schooling for the smallest pupils, many have otherwise voiced their concern.
Will the children be particularly exposed to infection, and what about educators, teachers and parents?
But with the restrictions being put in place, it makes sense to open the institutions, says Søren Brostrøm.
– It is our clear assessment that it is sound health-wise to carry out a controlled reopening, he says.
The Ministry of Health has issued a total of three guidelines that schools and day-care institutions must adhere to in order to prevent the spread of infection. The guides focus especially on cleaning, hand hygiene and keeping away.
