VP Inspects Face-to-Face Learning, Vaccination in Bogor Regency
Vice President Ma’ruf Amin Thursday (09/09) visited Bogor regency in West Java province to inspect vaccination and limited face-to-face classroom learning in the regency.
“I hope educational institutions continue to strictly observe health protocols in accordance with the Joint Ministerial Decree on Guidelines for Implementation of Learning Process During COVID-19 Pandemic,” the Vice President said after inspecting limited face-to-face learning at Junior High School 1 Citeureup, Bogor Regency.
For the record, Junior High School 1 Citeureup has implemented a trial for face-to-face learning since 1 September.
Every week, the school applies a maximum limit of 35 percent of total students to do face-to-face learning in classrooms.
Vice President Ma’ruf Amin also visited Health Vocational School (SMK Kesehatan) Annisa located in Citeureup to inspect COVID-19 vaccination.
“I hope the vaccination can provide maximum protection for students from COVID-19 transmission during face-to-face learning activities. Nevertheless, considering that COVID-19 pandemic has not yet ended, I urge everyone to remain vigilant by maintaining discipline in observing health protocols,” he said.
For the record, Instruction of Minister of Home Affairs Number 39 of 2021 on the Enforcement of Activity Restrictions (PPKM) Level 4, Level 3, and Level 2 during Corona Virus Disease 2019 Pandemic in the Islands of Java and Bali stipulates that educational institutions located in the Level 3 PPKM area may organize face-to-face learning on a limited basis.
The face-to-face learning is carried out with a combined learning system integrated with other students doing online learning.
The Government and the schools will periodically evaluate the implementation of limited face-to-face learning.
The results of the evaluation will determine whether face-to-face learning will be gradually expanded or stopped if COVID-19 transmission rate increases. (BPMI of Vice Presidential secretariat/UN) (RI/EP)
