More than 400 pupils sent home due to test result that ‘hasn’t arrived’

The mere fact that one teacher has taken a Covid test (on the basis that she is feeling unwell) has been enough for health authorities in Évora to send over 400 pupils home, to carry on with their studies via distance learning. The decision was taken “for precaution”, Marta Rebocho of the provisory administrative commission of Escola Secundária Severim de Faria, in Évora, explains.
