The Universidad Católica de Nicaragua (UNICA) – Catholic University of Nicaragua, also suspended classes until further notice. “We reiterate our priority to safeguard the safety and health of all,” indicates the UNICA letter that was published on its social networks.

The Nicaraguan North American Cultural Center (CCNN) informed its educational community that attending classes this Thursday “will be optional. In the course of the day we will be giving new indications,” they assured.

Another to suspend classes is the Juan Pablo II Catholic University (UCAJUP), Juigalpa campus.

“As a responsible university, committed to the well-being of our students and administrative staff, we suspend classes and administrative work until further notice,” the university reported.

The Universidad Centroamericanay was the first to suspend its face-to-face classes last Friday, March 13, as a preventive measure against a possible outbreak of coronavirus in the country, which Nicaragua did not have any confirmed cases.

Private schools go virtual

On Tuesday, at least seven private schools in the country reported the suspension of classes in person as a preventive measure for the coronavirus.

The Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Fátima school, in Rivas, the San Agustine school, the Lincoln, the Nordic, the Teresian, La Salle and the Central America of the sacred heart of Jesus, in Managua, took preventive measures and announced that the classes they would be taught virtually.

Some of the private schools that applied this measure had to make a formal request to the Ministry of Education (Mined), to authorize the implementation of the measure.
