The cabinet votes in favor of reopening grades 7-10 in low-infection areas from Sunday and pressing ahead with its original plan to gradually lift coronavirus restrictions.
The next stage of the government’s reopening plan, scheduled for around March 7, includes reopening restaurants and cafes, permitting hotels and event venues to open in accordance with Health Ministry guidelines, and easing limitations on gatherings.
From next week, those who are vaccinated will be allowed to sit inside cafes and restaurants, while those not immunized must sit outdoors. Hotels and event venues will be opened strictly to the vaccinated.
The general limit on gatherings will be expanded to 20 indoors, 50 outdoors.
