Ministers okay partial opening of schools Thursday

Ministers have agreed to reopen kindergartens and grades 1-4 Thursday in towns with low-to-moderate coronavirus infection rates.

They are believed to be considering allowing groups of up to 10 students to study in the open air in high-infection areas.

Channel 12 reports that top Haredi Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky has warned that without a plan for allowing studies in towns with high morbidity, he will order all schools in his community opened in defiance of the government.
