Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson prefers schools to reopen in 2021.

The Department of Education earlier said that schools will reopen in August 2021 amid the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) crisis.

“Let us stay on the safe side. What is one year anyway? Nobody will be left behind,” said Lacson. (https://bit.ly/36i6wtA)

The governor is banking on the possibility that a vaccine or even a cure for Covid-19 will be available next year, thus it is safer to reopen schools.

“But for now the threat is still there. For me, a one-year rest is not so bad. At least, it is safer by then, hopefully, there is already a vaccine and cure,” he added.

For now, Lacson said that everyone should be cautious and stay safe from the disease.
