Jordan plans to open schools in September amid successes limiting coronavirus spread

Thanks in large part to the March closures of schools and universities and the rapid response by the Jordanian government to stem the spread of the coronavirus, Jordan is now cautiously reopening education in the kingdom.

Jordan’s education minister announced plans to reopen schools in early September, as the kingdom approaches a cautious reopening amid successes limiting the spread of the coronavirus.

Jordanian Education Minister Tayseer Nuaimi said the country’s 2020-21 school year will resume on schedule and that procedures would be dictated in coordination with Jordan’s Health Ministry, according to Asharq Al-Awsat. Nuaimi said the ministry is ready to implement additional measures if the COVID-19 situation worsens.
