Meeting for new decree
Right after the inauguration of the Dr. Ricardo Cruz State Hospital, a modular unit in Nova Iguaçu, in Baixada Fluminense, this Saturday morning, the acting governor Cláudio Castro entered into a meeting with his entourage, to define which points will be addressed in a new decree of restrictions on coping with covid-19.
The new text should be based on the decision of the Supreme Federal Court (STF) that leaves the city halls in charge of which rules will be adopted for each region, taking into account the availability of beds and the health situation in each city. The measures will be published by the end of the day.
One of the points – still under study – is the recommendation to return to face-to-face classes with only 40% of the students’ capacity.
