ENSENADA.- Now that Baja California is under the green traffic light, state Governor Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda has revealed that Monday, February 28 will be the date where students of all educational levels will return to in-person classes. This will end a dormant period of online classes that has lasted a little under two years.

During the 14th edition of “Wednesday Morning Press Conference” carried out in the Second Naval Region in Ensenada, the Governor highlighted Baja Californians' unbreakable will by following health measures that allowed the infection rate to drop so notably, as confirmed by the scientific data collected by the Secretariat of Health.


She also recognized the work of teachers of the state, as well as education authorities and the leadership of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE), for making so much progress in educational development despite the pandemic, which will ease the transition back to in-person classes.

"Teachers' involvement has been very important in this process. They have put students’ educational interest above everything else ", the Governor stated to the media.


It should be noted that the morning press conference was attended by Ampelio Íñiguez and Juan Enrique Villanueva, leaders of SNTE sections 37 and 2, who attested to the coordination they have had with the state administration through the Secretary of Education, Gerardo Arturo Solís Benavides.

The state officer stated that the Secretariat will protect the socioemotional side of boys, girls, and teenagers who have been affected by the almost two years of the Covid-19 pandemic. At the same time, strategies will be generated, in cooperation with SNTE, to deal with students’ education delay.


Marina del Pilar pointed out that the 2,300 schools in the state will be prepared to deal with in-person classes, both in infrastructure and restorations of whichever facilities are needed to continue supporting and applying health measures inside and outside.

Secretary of Health, José Adrián Medina Amarillas, was also present and he explained the adequate health measures to be followed when under the green traffic light such as optional face mask usage in open spaces and its mandatory usage in enclosed spaces.
