Younger grades, street-front stores to reopen first when lockdown eased

Channel 13 lays out what is says is the Health Ministry’s plan for easing the lockdown.

In the first stage, kindergartens, grades 1-4 and 11-12 will partially reopen, as will street-front stores.

In the second stage, grades 5-10 will resume studies and “green passport” holders — namely those who were vaccinated or recovered from the virus — will be given certain freedoms, such as permission to attend cultural events.

In the third stage, restaurants and cafes will reopen.

But it remains unclear when the lockdown will be lifted.
