Facing the emergency in the region
Children, young people and adults are staying away from school due to COVID-19. In Latin America and the Caribbean, many countries have declared educational quarantine (school closure?) as part of efforts to stop the pandemic.
UNESCO is supporting countries in their response to these new scenarios and facilitating learning continuity.
