The quarantine affects 70 pupils and three teachers. For the rest of the school, teaching will continue normally on 20 January 2021. Others who studied in the same group as the infected pupil had also been wearing face masks.
– Pupils assigned to quarantine have been sent advance notice of exposure through the Wilma school app and will be contacted by the health authorities regarding quarantine measures. Those in quarantine are being taught remotely, says the principal of Vaasan Lyseon Lukio, Jaakko Perttu.
Teachers assigned to quarantine also provide distance learning to those groups continuing with face-to-face classroom teaching.
