One week alone and my daughter's class kicked off virus season at school.
A precocious honor that we would have gladly avoided.
"We already have positive in class" will be the new "It's already spring in El Corte Inglés."
The mother of the child notified us by WhatsApp, because the center was waiting for the response from
Health / Health / who-is-responsible
to inform us in detail and concrete answers.
(We had received a generic circular but you don't look at it until it doesn't affect you.)
Hopscotch or the handkerchief: the pandemic returns the same old games to schools
Does the fixation with playgrounds have scientific justification in the measures to curb the covid?
Between the mother's notice and the pickup of our children, three hours passed.
180 minutes in which, in addition to the uneasiness of the emotional "please-let-my-daughter-be-fine" and the practical "how-the-hell-do-we-manage-these-weeks?", We receive a trickle of messages, while we were giving advance notice to the people with whom we had had contact.
(If I put the tracker on my LinkedIn, I was showered with offers.)
Mobile phones were saturated with disparity of opinions, several parents contributed information from different official sources that contradicted each other and, to give more
to the script twist, other parents reported that their children had not gone to class because they were sick (but surely "Classic normal patients", that in autumn it is normal to catch everything. And if they go to kindergarten or school for the first time, that is the viral party.)
At the end, the press conference was in person at the door of the center, with the director, the coordinator and the teacher keeping their spirits and calm and all the parents asking at the same time as the typical group of journalists from the movies at the doors of the courts.
We all experience that situation for the first time, but they are going to have
of eating brown with different classes and different families throughout the course.
the measures work and there has only been one other case in another group weeks later.)
The good part is that a mobile unit would travel to do the PCR in class and the adults could accompany the students.
So in a group with their friends and a parent, it might be less traumatic (
: they ended up playing PCR).
But they did not know when they would come because the toilets were already saturated on the sixth day of the course.
took four harrowing days, where we all thought the kids were fine, but you never know.)
In the best of cases (all negative results) they still have to be isolated yes or yes.
10 days of confinement to the cart.
Even with the relief that your child is healthy, this is a headache for conciliation, work and the routine already created.
And if it tests positive ... in addition to suffering for children's health, quarantine and tests for the entire family unit that lives together.
Although we consider this course week by week, being constantly in the hype of the virus with a lottery that is played at all hours overwhelms even the most carefree.
Quick cheers and PCR for everyone.
