School will not be closing — report

Schools will not be closing despite a Health Ministry push to shutter high schools and middle schools, Channel 13 news reports.

Schools will only be shut if any student or staff there is found to have the virus, according to the report.

Only eight of the cases confirmed in the last day came from schools, according to Ynet news, citing the Health Ministry.

The ministry says 4,925 students and staff are in quarantine, after reports earlier in the day had put the figure at twice that.
