Secondary schools in Greece reopen on Monday

Secondary schools reopened their classrooms to students on Monday, February 1.

Schools have been closed for several weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic and the health restrictions imposed as a precaution against its spread. The decision to reopen schools was taken on the basis of a recommendation by the health ministry’s committee of coronavirus experts.

Exceptions are upper secondary schools in the so-called “red zone” areas where there is a heavy epidemiological burden, where distance learning is continuing.

The opening of schools is accompanied by health protection measures against the spread of the new coronavirus: mandatory use of a mask indoors and outdoors, use of antiseptics and good ventilation of the premises.
