The administration of the “Evrika” Lyceum situated in Rybnitsa town of the Transnistrian region calls on the Moldovan authorities to intervene as two employees of the institution who live on the right bank of the Nistru are not allowed to come to work following the institution of a quarantine regime by the Transnistrian administration. Contacted by IPN, the lyceum’s principal Eugenia Halus said the two employees are the institution’s accountant and secretary.
“Without an accountant, we cannot pay for public utilities. Furthermore, we signed contracts with Transnistrian business entities and do not want to come into conflict with them, to delay the payments or to face fines,” noted the principal.
Eugenia Halus said that initially, she went to the so-called customs post, but could not solve the problem. She then made an approach to the Transnistrian authorities. She voiced hope that the authorities in Chisinau will cooperate with the authorities in Tiraspol so that this problem is solved as swiftly as possibly.
In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, communication with the lyceum’s students is ensured through social networking sites. The class masters created online groups and check homework in a remote regime. Furthermore, they daily call the students and inquire about their state of health and later report to the Education Division in Rezina.
Restrictive measures were adopted in the Transnistrian region in a move to protect the residents from COVID-19. A state of emergency was declared until April 5.
