Abstract

South America has become the new epicenter of the coronavirus, especially in Brazil where the disease continues to spread exponentially across the country. This text aims to analyze the psychosocial factors of Covid-19 on back to school strategies in Brazil from a bioecological perspective. At the microsystem level, the population is experiencing different levels of stress and fear; at the mesosystem level, changes in routines, separation from family and friends, and closure of schools; and at the macrosystem level, national guidelines to control the pandemic, institutional standards on a national and international scale. Therefore, the main focus for the success of school return must be in the prevention of contagion and with physical and psychological health, and should not only consider the demands of curricula, financial or administrative management. For this reason, it is paramount that greater female representativeness is increased in decision-making levels of the meso and macrosystem, regarding the resumption of school and academic activities in the pandemic period, since the number of female leaders in decision-making, is still insufficient.

Comment: In the introduction, we excluded repeated information and actualized: “on the date of writing this article Brazil sums up more than two million confirmed cases and eighty-six thousand deaths”. We also made minor style review modifications throughout the text and corrected mistakes as: “at the mesosystem level, changes in routines, separation from family and friends, and closure of schools”. Finally, we improved the conclusions and actualized references.
