The pilot face-to-face class implementation supposed to take place Monday in two schools in Zambales has been canceled after seven teachers contracted COVID-19.
Principal of the San Marcelino National High School, Sir John Abordo said two of their teaching staff tested positive after taking rapid antigen tests.
The town’s public high school is among the 10 chosen by the Department of Education (DepEd) for the pilot implementation of physical classroom lessons with a select number of pupils.
In the Baliwet Elementary School, five teachers also tested positive for COVID-19 based on their rapid antigen tests ahead of the resumption of face-to-face classes, which prompted the school officials to suspend the pilot run.
Limited face-to-face classes resumed Monday in Banawen Elementary School in San Felipe town.
Also resuming classes were the Belbel Elementary School, the Maguisguis Integrated School, the Nacolcol Integrated School, the Owaog-Nebloc Elementary School, Moraza Elementary School, and the Palis Integrated School, all in Botolan town.
DepEd said these schools were among the 28 in Luzon that passed a granular risk assessment and was classified as minimal or low risk for COVID-19 spread.
