Schools won’t be reopened before Wednesday, education minister says

Education Minister Yoav Gallant says schools won’t be reopened before Wednesday, according to Hebrew media reports.

The government has yet to make a decision on when to reopen the education system after over a month of lockdown.

But Gallant says that even if a decision is made to reopen at a meeting later tonight, the move won’t be implemented before Wednesday.
