Continuous education

The government removed restrictions on educational institutions from 18 August and replaced them from the start of the new school year with recommendations issued jointly by the Ministry of Health and the Health Board on preventing the spread of coronavirus. This decision applies to general education schools, professional and high schools, institutions for further learning, hobby schools, public youth centres, youth camps, educational camps, and training for car drivers and heavy vehicle drivers. The decision removes from these places of education the requirement for rooms to be filled to a maximum 50% capacity.

Providers of adult education and continuous education should also consider when planning their educational year how to minimise the risks from the spread of the coronavirus. Good hand hygiene must be a priority at all times and anyone showing signs of illness should remain at home. Activities should be dispersed as much as possible and contact between different learning groups should be reduced.

It is recommended that institutions remain ready to move over to distance learning throughout the educational year.

The recommendations on hygiene and cleaning of premises issued by the Health Board need to be observed.

The education institution is not directly responsible for providing protective masks to all students and staff. An appropriate solution can be found by working with teachers.

It is important to follow the universal recommendations, including not attending classes when ill, ensuring that hands can be and are washed, airing rooms where necessary, cleaning surfaces, and dispersing study groups.
