Health officials to recommend reopening some school grades in low-infection areas

The Health Ministry will recommend reopening kindergartens and some school grades in low-infection cities and towns from next week, according to Army Radio.

These include first and second grades, along with 11th and 12th, the report says.

In addition, takeout will be permitted in these areas and workplaces that don’t serve customers in person will be allowed to reopen, according to the report.

In low-infection locales, gatherings will still be limited to 10 outdoors and 5 indoors.

The report says a recommendation on high-infection areas has yet to be formulated.

Ministers will meet today to hammer out a plan to lift the restrictions.
