Schools in Bahrain to remain closed for another two weeks

Schools in Bahrain are set to remain closed for a further two weeks, the Ministry of Education has announced.

The decision to keep all universities, kindergartens and schools closed has been made as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

According to the Bahrain News Agency, teachers and admin staff within these institutions will return to work on Sunday (March 8), in order to ensure institutional efficiency and the success of the academic year.

Students will not return to school until Sunday March 29.

Bahrain has been taking a number of precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in recent weeks, with the World Health Organisation praising the strenuous efforts being made.

The Kingdom’s educational institutions first shut on February 26. Since then, students have been learning from home with virtual schools.

Bahraini citizens have been banned from travelling to Iran, and a number of events including the Bahrain International Garden Show have been postponed.

The Interior Ministry has also urged citizens to avoid public gatherings.
