Arranging secure on-site teaching

The organization of safe contact teaching is guided by e.g. the following principles:

• Following general hygiene instructions

• Recommending the use of a face mask

• Staggering of mealtimes, taking into account safety intervals and general hygiene instructions

• Utilization of the premises of all educational institutions, so that social distancing can be better taken care of.

• Staggering of breaks as well as of entering and leaving the school In accordance with the principal's instructions.

On 24 November 2020, the City of Vantaa’s Disruption Management Team decided that the distribution of face masks would be extended to secondary schools. If a secondary school student cannot afford to buy face masks or has forgotten a face mask at home, the student can pick up a face mask from a point indicated by the educational institution. The main rule is that the student acquires his or her own mask.
