For Adilson Correia, even with the reopening of the sector scheduled for after the lifting of the state of emergency, more concretely, on June 2, many may even open, but, if there are no students who depend on emigrant relatives who are also in difficulties for the acquisition of the driving license they close the activities again, taking into account the expenses with the operation.

The fact is that, according to him, schools have closed their activities since the first state of emergency, and with that there was no revenue collection.
