Vico Sotto Is Skipping Plastic Barriers in Schools, Trusting the Science of Ventilation Instead
Mayor Vico Sotto said Wednesday the dry run of face-to-face classes in Pasig City would do away with plastic barriers to separate students, relying instead on the science of physical distancing and proper ventilation.
Students wearing face masks were positioned one seat apart during the simulation at Pasig Elementary School. Unlike in other schools, there were no plastic barriers, photos Sotto shared on Facebook showed.
"Gaya ng sabi ng maraming eksperto—the key is good ventilation and air flow!" he said.
Sotto said four schools in the city could be part of the face-to-face classes dry run: Pasig Elementary School, Nagpayong Elementary School, F. Legaspi Memorial School, and Pasig Ugong National High School.
DepEd Pasig is eyeing the return of face-to-face classes by Dec. 6, he said.
