Other precautionary measures remain in force, such as wearing a mask in the corridors and common areas for children in grades I to IV, as well as everywhere for older students and teachers, keeping distance, disinfecting and ventilating.

From the abolition of testing until the end of the epidemic, online learning will only be possible for students who have written permission. According to the Preschool and School Education Act, parents have the right to choose to transfer their children to an electronic environment for health or other valid reasons, certified by a document. For up to 30 days of online learning, permission for this is given by the school principal, and for a longer period - by the head of the Regional Department of Education.
