The National Center for Security and Crisis Management (NCSCM) announced Wednesday that since the beginning of the new academic year, a total of 2,000 students have contracted the coronavirus.
The rate of infection with the coronavirus in schools has reached 0.4 percent, according to the NCSCM.
Earlier, the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Education for Administrative and Financial Affairs Najwa Qubailat indicated that the ministry has developed three scenarios for students' return to in-person education, including:
1- Schools must comply with the required health and safety measures, including committing to maintaining a distance of one meter between students inside the classrooms.
2- Schools that do not adhere to maintaining a distance of one meter between students will return to the rotational shift system.
3- If a student tests positive for the coronavirus, the student must home-quarantine for a period of 14 days, and switch to distance learning.
