SANTANA-LOPEZ, Borja N.  and  GRUPO MULTIDISCIPLINAR EDUCATIVO EDUCACOVID et al. Teachers’ attitudes and knowledge about the COVID-19 pandemic in the Canary Islands. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.1, pp.64-69.  Epub Nov 13, 2020. ISSN 1726-4634.

A cross-sectional study was carried out to determine the teachers’ attitudes and knowledge about the COVID-19 pandemic in the Canary Islands region in Spain, between May 14 - 18, 2020. A virtual questionnaire based on a validated instrument was applied. We included 1,503 surveys, which showed that teachers are unwilling to work if there is risk of infection at the school (76.6%). However, they state that they would go to work if they had the appropriate hygiene (69.2%) and protection (67.0%) measures. In conclusion, it is important to guarantee the necessary preventive measures to avoid contagion in educational centers, promoting specific training of teachers in primary prevention.
