HCMC plans to reopen in-person classes for all first, ninth and 12th graders starting December 13 for a two-week trial.

The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee said Wednesday that students of the aforementioned grades would return to school from December 13 to December 25. The city would review the results after and consider extending the reopening period.

Five-year-old children would return to kindergartens on December 20.

In Can Gio District, however, the Thanh An kindergarten, primary, secondary and high schools on Thanh An island will resume classes for all grades on December 13.

City authorities have asked all schools to complete their Covid-19 prevention plans before December 3. The plans would need to be approved by local Steering Committees for Covid-19 Prevention and Control first before the schools can reopen.

On the first day that students return to school, they will be trained in coronavirus prevention measures including medical declarations and other steps before classes begin. If either students or teachers have symptoms like fever, cough or breathing difficulty, they need to stay home and inform the school.
