The reflection of the Omicron variant on schools is very low

Emphasizing that the country has a huge education system, Özer said: “An education system with approximately 850 thousand classrooms. As of today, face-to-face education has been suspended in only 850 of 50 thousand classrooms due to a case or close contact. As of now, although the prevalence of the Omicron variant is very high, its reflection on our schools is extremely low. The rate of closed classes is well below 1 percent. Hopefully, we will continue face-to-face education in our schools by paying attention to mask, distance and cleaning rules. The health of our children is very important to us. These measures are very important. It is very important to comply with these measures in out-of-school environments. Because all socialization spaces in society affect each other. Naturally, it also affects schools. That's why we ask our parents and our society to follow the health rules so that schools remain open to face-to-face education. Hopefully, this process will continue as it did in the first period.” Özer noted that they will evaluate the quality and situation of education in Konya, and they will make openings.
