According to official data, a total of 1,057,897 students from 4,501 schools and 57,373 teachers will return to their usual activities. The state government reported that constant monitoring by the National Coordination of Civil Protection and the state of Puebla continues. The traffic light is still yellow phase 3.

This Friday, the State Secretary of Education issued a series of recommendations indicating that outdoor activities in schools will remain suspended, the doors and windows of the classrooms must remain closed and “permanent” cleaning work must be carried out.

At 9:48 p.m. local time on Sunday, the colossus registered an “emission of water vapor, gases, ash, and the release of incandescent material,” the Civil Protection of Puebla reported on its social networks. The ash was dispersed towards the east-southeast of the state.

For this Monday, Civil Protection pointed out on Twitter that, in the event of emissions from the volcano, the ash could go to: Serdán – Valles Centrales, Angelópolis, Valle de Atlixco – Matamoros and Tehuacán – Sierra Negra.
