Ministry of Education
The reaction, at least those from the educational community, was mostly caused by the attitude of epidemiologist and member of the Crisis Staff Dr Predrag Kon, who warned that the winter break should begin before St. Nicholas, which is celebrated on December 19, because that is the period when gastarbeiters enter our country, as they come from European countries where the delta strain reigns.
Only students with a valid document for post-illness or vaccination (for children over 12) will not be tested. This was clarified by the Ministry of Education.
Children with special educational needs will be tested by their parents at home.
Private schools will also receive free tests for young students, the Ministry of Education and Science said.
Instead, the recommendation of the School Team will be to extend the autumn break, Blic has learned.
According to Blic, no decision has been made yet on how many days the autumn break should be extended, which will be in the first half of November. The final decision is at the Crisis Staff, which, according to the announcements, will meet tomorrow.
She also stated that "there is a slow growth - we have exceeded 55% of those vaccinated, and that is what is most important." Brnabic said at the press conference after visiting the Kragujevac company for distribution of thermal energy "Energetika" that for now there will be no extension of the validity of COVID passes to 24 hours.
