San Juan was the first province in Argentina to resume in-person classes in August. Now, the other regions of Argentina have gradually joined San Juan.

The first stage of the school opening invites the voluntary return of final year students in technical, middle and primary schools. Along with a teacher, only eight students are allowed in each study group. Meanwhile, in the case of a positive COVID-19 case, the group to which the affected student or teacher belongs will be suspended from the school.
