News Details

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) announced yesterday that students will return to schools and kindergartens with full in-person attendance from Sunday, January 30.

In a statement, the ministry said that based on its coordination with the Ministry of Public Health, in light of the health indicators of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the interest of students and their academic future, the following has been decided:

  • Adopting the system of actual attendance of all students in all public and private schools and kindergartens at 100 percent of its capacity, while continuing to adhere to the application of all precautionary and preventive measures, starting from Sunday, January 30.
  • Conducting a rapid antigen test on a weekly basis at home for all students of public and private schools and kindergartens for all grades. This is to allow them to enter the school building, provided that the test takes place within a maximum of 48 hours before returning to school, according to the following mechanism:
    • Conducting a rapid antigen self-test for students at home during the weekend (on Friday or Saturday of each week).
    • Bring a (negative) test result with the student to the school by using the acknowledgment form signed by the guardian to conduct the test (the home test acknowledgment form can be obtained through the public services portal and the ministry’s media platforms).
    • In the case that the student’s test result is positive, he/she must visit the nearest health centre to confirm the result, and if it is confirmed that he/she is infected with the virus, he/she must follow the established health isolation procedures, and attend classes through the distance learning system, which will be available if the student’s health condition permits this.
