THE Department of Education (DepEd) said they did not monitor any COVID-19 positive case in any of the more than 300 schools that participated in the holding of limited face to face classes.

There was also “Zero” case for COVID-19 recorded for teachers and other school personnel and also among students for the past two weeks.

The data is based on the monitoring and reporting of on-ground DepEd personnel.

During the Laging Handa public briefing, DepEd Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan said that there were some who exhibited flu-like symptoms but they were not confirmed to be COVID-positive.

According to Malaluan, there are now more than 300 schools participating in the limited face-to-face classes around the country.

He added that pilot testing in other schools that were allowed to participate in the limited face-to-face classes have already started last week, while pilot testing was also started today in the National Capital Region (NCR).

Malaluan said there were 118 participating schools in the first batch, while 174 other schools were added, including the NCR.

There were also three private schools in the NCR that passed the school safety assessment and were allowed to participated in the limited face-to-face classes.

However, the DepEd is still waiting for the approval of their respective local government units.
