Local authorities urge government to reopen all schools on March 1

Local authorities are urging the government to reopen all schools around the country on March 1, Channel 12 reports.

The proposal comes after over a dozen cities, including Tel Aviv-Jaffa and Haifa, threaten to reopen classes for 7th-10th graders from Wednesday. Younger grades and grades 11-12 have already resumed studies in low-infection and medium-infection areas.

It is not immediately clear whether the government will adopt the plan.
