This week (26 – 30 October 2020), specialized steps of EODY will go to schools of all levels (Primary, Gymnasiums, Lyceums) of the Prefectures of Kozani and Kastoria, in order to carry out a sample test on students and teachers. The choice of school units will be random.
The aim of the sampling test is the early diagnosis and prevention of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in the school and then in the wider community.. Tests will be performed using the fast SARS-CoV-2 antigen detection method (rapid test).A necessary condition for drawing safe conclusions is the large participation of students in the sampling test.. However, the examination of students for SARS-CoV-2 will be optional.
Note that no sampling will be performed on students without prior written consent of their parents / guardians.
