Phnom Penh (FN), Aug. 27 – Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport allowed public schools of all levels in four cities to reopen from 7 September 2020, the Ministry’s Spokesperson Ros Soveacha told Fresh News on Thursday.

The four cities include the city of Kratie, Stung Treng, Ratanakiri, and Mondulkiri.

“Following ground evaluation and assessment, the Ministry of Education has allowed schools in four cities, including the cities of Kratie, Stung Treng, Ratanakiri, and Mondulkiri to reopen from 7 September due to low risks of Covid-19 in these cities,” Soveacha said.

“We will further examine the possibility to ensure that public schools in the capital Phnom Penh and other provinces can operate in small scale,” he added.

The ministry said it will allow private educational enterprises of all levels to reopen after they meet necessary safety and hygiene protocols and required guidelines set out by the ministry; submit the request to reopen their institutions; and sign agreement with the ministry prior to operations, according to the spokesperson.
