THE University of Granada has been ordered to suspend all in-person teaching for the next two weeks in a bid to keep down coronavirus figures.

The Junta has also decreed that night schools or colleges must close by 10pm and that any higher education centre which has seen a positive test result among staff or students will be screened for more cases.

Despite registering an incidence rate of 501 cases per 100,000, Junta spokesman Elias Bendodo told press today that the city ‘does not meet the criteria’ to be closed down.

However to make sure ‘it is not closed in two weeks’, Bendodo said action had to be taken at the university, which has detected 150 infections across seven different residences in the past few days.

All the specific measures relating to university and higher education centres will be detailed in a decree.

The decree will be published later today or very early on Wednesday, and will be effective from tomorrow.
