Schools began reopening in Buenos Aires on Tuesday amid a gradual return to in-person classes, with measures in place to protect students against the coronavirus.
The first students of Buenos Aires assisted classes held outside, in open courtyards, while wearing masks and face shields and maintaining social distancing.
Their temperature was checked upon arrival to the premises.
One of the students, Fabricio Quintonibraza, said that «it was very good, we were able to talk with the teachers who explained things to us and not for the camera, it was good because we were able to use the blackboard, we could see things that until now we did not understand so much.»
The classes are divided into groups of 10 students to prevent potential outbreaks from spreading, following the security regulations set by the government.
According to the Education Minister of Buenos Aires Autonomous City Soledad Acuna, 70,000 students of private and state schools will be able to return to classes.
