The government is planning to start the academic year in the regular manner, with schools opening on September 1, the human resources ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

According to the statement,

the status of the coronavirus epidemic does not justify having digital education to replace classrooms, the statement said, adding, however, that “in many countries there has been a significant increase in case numbers and domestic figures also worrying”.

The statement also said that further measures could be ordered should the government and relevant authorities see the need.

Schools will be given a protocol concerning coronavirus prevention,

the statement said, adding that parents should not send children with Covid-19 symptoms to school.

Under a government decree soon to be published, the next school year will start on September 1, and end on June 15, 2021.

  1. A child behind a machine gun looks very disturbing…. what does that photo have to do with the article?

  2. Mario….you behind a computer keyboard is way more disturbing than a kid learning how to use a firearm. Kids should be taught from an early age about weapons safety. When I was in school we had hunter safety course taught right at school with actual fully functional hunting rifles in the school building and not once did a student shoot up a school. Mario people like you fear guns because you know that a people that are armed remain free, people unarmed become subjects of Marxist tyranny.
