“To return to school, it will not only have taken a test once, but at least two to several days apart,” said the minister, before his cabinet clarified that it is only of a “working hypothesis”.

The vagueness is still complete around the health protocol which will apply at the start of the school year on January 3, 2022. “To return to school, it will not only be necessary to have presented a test once, but at least two to several days. interval ”, announced this December 28 in the morning Jean-Michel Blanquer on France Inter. “We are working on this interval, once again, in dialogue with the scientific authorities,” he continued.

However, the measure has not yet been ratified, the minister’s office informed the radio and Franceinfo. The Ministry of National Education thus clarified that this was only a “working hypothesis, which is being studied in conjunction with the health authorities”. In the current state, “the child who will have a first negative test will be able to return to school”, added the cabinet of Jean-Michel Blanquer.

Status quo therefore. The current protocol, decided at the end of November, no longer provides for the closure of a class from the first case detected. In primary school, when there is a positive case, children only return to school with a negative test.

Jean-Michel Blanquer assured that the question had been debated and decided “in a sense of physical presence” of the students, without gauge, “to his knowledge”. He specified that his colleague from Higher Education Frédérique Vidal would have the opportunity to speak on this point.
