The new rules announced by the Ministry of Health mean that masks will no longer be required at schools from Monday, April 25th.
At the end of the Easter holiday, at the beginning of the new semester, students will no longer be forced to wear masks in the classroom, according to government guidelines. It is now up to the school to enforce its own rules for face coverings.
A document issued by Health Minister Chris Fern and the Director of Health Pharmacy outlines existing mitigations that will continue to come into force, as well as the new amendments that will come into force on Monday, April 25.
Other major changes include changes to rally mitigation measures.
The document states that “all activities prior to Covid-19 should be carried out with basic mitigation measures in mind.”
This means that parents can participate in school activities without being vaccinated, as long as basic mitigation measures are in mind.
The document also continuously advises people to keep in mind the principles of hand hygiene, physical distance, ventilation, and masking, while leaving the implementation of these measures in the hands of the school.
For public events, participants must have a valid vaccine certificate.
