The thrust is clear: If there are Omikron cases in individual classes, the children have to be in quarantine – but that doesn’t mean that the whole school has to close, says Education Director Heinrich Himmer the all-clear. He hopes for a nationwide uniform regulation, otherwise the measures apply as before: mask and PCR test compulsory and no compulsory attendance.
Because the past few months have not been easy for the students either, he generally recommends taking the pressure off a little. Before the holidays, around 85 percent of the students accepted the offer of face-to-face lessons, which is also a positive sign. He is currently in quarantine himself, which is why eXXpressTV editor Tanja Pfaffeneder conducted the interview with him via video switch.
