The work of children's institutions will resume on November 22.


The Government of the Republic of Korea has ordered the resumption of face-to-face work of all kindergartens, elementary, middle and high schools in the country from next week. This was announced on Friday by the KBS television channel, referring to the Ministry of Education.

According to it, in accordance with the government program for a gradual return to normal daily life, the work of these institutions will resume on November 22. This will be the first time in almost two years since the start of the pandemic.

As of November 1, the country's social distancing rules have been relaxed as part of the first phase of a three-stage gradual return to normal daily life. However, the authorities have postponed the full resumption of in-person classes until the end of the unified state exam, which took place on November 18.

The Ministry of Education has promised to provide schools in the capital region, where the epidemic situation is more tense than in the whole country, with additional staff and financial assistance to fight infection. Regional departments of education will allow educational institutions the flexibility to change their attendance policy based on the current situation.

The number of coronavirus infections in the Republic of Korea exceeds three thousand for the third day in a row, against the background of the lifting of most restrictions. The largest number of new cases (80.3%) was detected in the metropolitan area, which includes Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi Province.
