The Minister of Education has ordered 6th grade students to carry out two self-tests per week as of November 29. He assured that the test boxes would be provided to families from the start of the week of November 29.

The Minister of Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, announced on November 26 on France Inter that 6th year students will be able to carry out, from November 29, two self-tests per week. “The 6th year classes are a special case because the children are under 12 and are not vaccinated. I am announcing a new measure that we are going to take: the distribution of self-tests to 6th year students, corresponding to two self-tests per week, ”said Jean-Michel Blanquer.

“We will give a box of ten self-tests worth five weeks to 6th grade students,” he continued, confirming that this material would be distributed to families from November 29.

During the press conference on November 25, the Minister of Education announced that there would no longer be class closures in primary schools from the first case of coronavirus detected in a student. Only those who test positive will be isolated.

The number of classes closed due to the Covid-19 epidemic this week stands at 8,890, or 1.7% of classes in the country. “It’s a lot, it’s important that it doesn’t go too far. We have already been up to 12,000 closed classes, I remind you, ”commented Jean-Michel Blanquer.

The minister said that this new device, by involving parents in the screening effort, would not overload the testing system at the national level. He also insisted on free tests.
