The Minister of National Education announced the strengthening of the tests. Are we ready in the Lyon Academy? Yes, according to principal Olivier Dugrip.
“We will gradually distribute the unit across the country from next week”. In December, a test campaign was already carried out in connection with the regional council. Seven screening centers had also been established by the rectorate. About fifty volunteer school nurses have been trained to perform antigen tests.
More than 45,000 tests are stored in the region with all the necessary equipment (masks, dresses, etc.), We are in operation. We are able to store again in a national system without risk of shortage or not in stock “, assures Olivier Curnelle, Secretary General of the Academy.
From now on, mobile teams will travel to the establishments. The regional health authority will define the areas in which the tests must be carried out as a priority. A department’s mobile team will also be set up. When three cases are found in a company, this team will be sent within 48 hours to test all employees, college or high school students. Finally, in the context of ARS, “test institutions” will be defined. Systematic test campaigns will be conducted there every two weeks.
