The Ministry of Education also stated that it will monitor and inspect the return of students under the age of 12 by following all health protocols approved and stated by the Public Health Authority (Weqaya), as well as confirming that all schools are ready to accept male and female students beginning January 23, and that all precautionary and health measures have been met.

In a statement to Al-Arabiya, Educational Advisor Ibrahim Al-Humaidan said that if two cases of corona infection arise in a classroom, it will be closed, and if cases of infection appear in two classes, the school will be closed.

During the news conference, the following statements were made: According to a spokesperson for the Department of Education, it is not possible to continue distance education solely because of the pandemic’s persistence, especially given the rise in societal immunity.
