Education Secretary Leonor Briones has recommended the conduct of face-to-face classes in areas considered as “low risk” for COVID-19 but on a limited basis.

In a meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte that was televised on Tuesday, Briones said that the physical classes in selected parts of the country could be held once or twice a week only.

“For basic education, maybe we can allow limited face-to-face learning but to be strictly regulated in the light of present conditions,” she said.

Stringent health standards will be imposed, and the classrooms to be used must be conducive for social distancing, Briones said. DepEd and Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases personnel will conduct inspections, she said.

Briones added that local government units must also be ready to support the schools that will hold face-to-face classes through the Special Education Fund, as the administrative cost of maintaining the minimum health standards is expected to be costly.
