The Ministry of Education will review the situation on a weekly basis

The UAE’s Ministry of Education said on Sunday, January 10, that students in the country may return to school for face-to-face learning at 50 per cent of the campus capacity.

The ministry added that temperatures must be monitored, physical distancing adhered to and all the other relevant health and safety protocols must be observed as students return to their campus.

Also, it added that the prevailing health situation will be evaluated “on a weekly basis to make the appropriate decision” for the rest of the term.

An action plan it formulated for the safe return to schools during this academic year 2020-2021 stemmed from a study of the current health situation, and recommendations of the authorities, as well as feedback it received from students and partners.

On Sunday, it also announced via Twitter centres where educational staff could get vaccinated in Ajman and Fujairah.
