Schools, universities and kindergartens in Bahrain closed until further notice

The decision was made at a Government Executive Committee meeting yesterday

Schools, universities and kindergartens in Bahrain closed until further notice

Schools, universities and kindergartens in Bahrain will remain closed until further notice.

Bahrain first announced these educational institutions would be closed for two weeks on February 26, before extending this for a further two weeks on March 5.

Teachers and administrative staff returned to work on March 8, but the Ministry of Education has encouraged people to work from home if possible.

Eight hours of academic content are set to be broadcast on the second sports channel of Bahrain TV and on YouTube. They will be presented by a group of teachers and specialists.

Bahrain is taking a number of precautionary steps to stop the spread of coronavirus, including suspending all visas on arrival.

Public gatherings have been limited to 20 people or less, movie theatres, gyms and all other centres for recreational activities have been closed.

Restaurants have also become delivery-only.

In response, we’ve temporarily changed our logo to Time In, and we’ll be sharing all the best things to do at home instead of going out.

We’ll also be keeping you up to date on all the latest news, advice and travel information in relation to coronavirus here.
