to Ramp Up School Disinfection Efforts

 

 

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education Yoo Eun-hae held an advisory meeting with epidemiologists and health professionals on October 28, 2021 at Korea Institute of Educational Facility Safety. The meeting was organized to monitor where the school infection activities should be headed, and to discuss how to thoroughly prevent COVID-19 from spreading in schools and education institutions.

  ㅇ This advisory meeting was convened to ask for expert advise from epidemiologists on how disinfection activities should be carried out in schools as the country takes gradual steps to return to normal life in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is set to be announced on Friday, October 29. Ideas raised by the experts in this meeting will be taken into consideration when new disease prevention procedures are brought forward to be applied in all schools.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education Yoo Eun-hae said, "As nationwide steps will be taken to gradually return to normal daily life, students may be exposed to greater health risks. This is why we need to carefully approach how and when we should introduce measures to return our schools to normalcy."

  ㅇ She added, "It will be all the more important to gather wide-ranging wisdom while striking a balance between education and disease prevention to give normal school life back to students by closely working with experts, local education authorities, health authorities and schools.
