Schools, universities in HCM City to continue online study until Feb 28
The People’s Committee of HCM City has directed all educational establishments in the city to remain closed and resume online study until Feb 28.
Under the city’s original plan, students would have returned to schools and universities on February 17. But, under the new directive, they will resume online study after the Tet holiday until February 28 to maintain the academic year schedule.
Schools will also continue to implement measures to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19, and students and teachers will have to submit health declarations when they return to school.
At the beginning of this month following the COVID-19 outbreak, the city authority directed schools to switch to online study for the week before Tết.
