The Ministry of Education and Training has proposed continuing the closure of schools from nursery and secondary levels for an additional one to two weeks as part of coronavirus prevention measures.
Schools have to strictly conform to coronavirus preventive measures to ensure safety when students return.
The Ministry of Education will keep a close watch on the situation to guide localities. Due to the school closures, the 2019-2020 academic school year would be finished later than usual, before June 30.
The entrance exam into Grade 10 would be completed before August 15 and the high school graduation exam would be carried out before July 26.
