Zero Covid-19 cases
The DepEd also reported that there are no cases of Covid-19 among participating learners and school personnel during the first week of the pilot of the face-to-face classes.
DepEd Assistant Secretary for Field Operations Malcolm Garma said this could be attributed to the strict adherence and enforcement of guidelines in ensuring the safety of learners and other personnel in the participating pilot schools’ operations.
According to a November 24 report from the Planning Service on the pilot run assessment, 62 out of 100 or more than 60 percent of the schools have submitted their Week 1 assessment report from Nov.15 to 19, 2021.
