Vidal announces a goal of returning to face-to-face “between January 4 and 11”.

The President of the Republic was diagnosed positive for Covid-19, announced the Elysée Palace on Thursday, December 17. “This diagnosis was confirmed following an RT-PCR test carried out as soon as the first symptoms appeared,” the Elysée Palace said in a statement.

This did not prevent the Minister of Higher Education, Frédérique Vidal, from delivering on RMC the objectives of a partial return of students to faculties in early January.

Towards a return of young people to universities? The Minister of Higher Education, Frédérique Vidal, was optimistic for the start of the academic year this Thursday morning on RMC.

The goal is “that we can resume the presence at the beginning of January, between January 4 and 11 (…) but not for everyone, not 100%,” she explained.

This return on site will not concern everyone. “The first years, students with disabilities, international students,” will be able to resume classroom classes, “the most fragile,” said the minister.

“The others will stay at home” while waiting for the pandemic situation to improve, she said in front of Apolline de Malherbe. “The objective is to restore the link between students and teachers,” she explained on RMC.
