Sorin Cîmpeanu declared, on Sunday afternoon, that ‘parents can participate in festivities but, depending on the specific conditions of each school (dimensions of open spaces) it is recommended, more or less pressed, to avoid as much as possible the presence parents with students or at least not both parents come.’
‘It’s not a ban, it’s a recommendation. ‘, pointed out the Minister of Education.
Sorin Cîmpeanu then specified that “each school has specific conditions, the principal of each school has the duty to announce to the parents how much he can allow their access.”
However, ‘in general, access is allowed everywhere, but with this request: understanding that the presence of many parents and grandparents creates congestion, amplifies the possibility of spreading the virus, which can turn against their own children or grandchildren, against the school with physical presence. . ‘, explained the Minister of Education.
