It is neither health or science, it is a minister afraid of the teachers unions. If privates schools open and have no covid spread then the pressure will be on the public schools to reopen. Some schools will will allowed to open in 24 more municipalities, including La Vega and Constanza, but not Jarabacoa.

reminds me of the joke about johnny being 6 foot tall and in the 3 grade. The other kids made fun of him and he wanted to know if it was because he was 6 foot tall and his mama says the other kids are making fun of him because he is 18 years old and still in the 3 grade. I think this is the result the goverment here is looking for. dumb and dumber
