Health Minister Adam Vojtěch (for ANO) said the cabinet is extending the schools reopening regime within its step-by-step softening of anti-coronavirus restrictions such as the March 11 closure of all elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.

The cabinet recently said schools would not fully reopen until the school year end on June 30. The state plans their reopening to be gradual.

The university final-year students were the first to be permitted to go to school this week, but on condition they take part in joint activities of five people at the most.

The same limit also applies to the rest of the students who may re-enter universities as of next Monday, Vojtech said.

If the epidemiological situation enables it, students of last grades of secondary schools might return to schools on May 11 and children in the first five grades of elementary schools as of May 25.

The government’s timetable reckons with the return of elementary schools 6-9th graders and secondary school students from lower grades still before the summer holiday the least of all.
