Schools in Andalusia plan to reopen in September with face-to-face lessons, but students will have to wear masks during lessons and recess.

Online education will only be available to third-year ESO students or to schools located in areas where the health alert is level three or four.

The Andalusian Ministry of Health and Sports will release guidelines next week to give schools time to prepare before September, ABC reported on July 9.

Like the last academic year, school students will also be organized in “bubbles”, “students will occupy the same physical space in classrooms and complementary services – office, headquarters, workplace, school cafeteria – in order to be able to identify contacts in the event of contagion more precisely. The classroom that the cohabitation group uses and the recreation areas, the use of the toilets or the use of common areas must be clearly demarcated, ”the ministry decreed last year.

Andalusia, like elsewhere in Spain, is experiencing a growing number of infections among young people. Junta de Andalucia president Juanma Moreno called for “caution” so that tighter restrictions do not have to be reintroduced in August.

On July 8, Valencia reintroduced Covid restrictions and urges people to wear masks outside. The Generalitat is also asking for powers to impose curfews in high-risk areas between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m., limit the number of people who can meet at home to 10 and stop the sale of alcohol in stores and supermarkets. after 8 p.m.
