Students in Grades 4-8 and Grades 1-3 will return to school after April 20, and after April 26 respectively, while kindergartens will reopen after May 6. Colleges and universities should prepare to reopen in late April.
Students with difficulties in returning to schools, foreign students and teachers who are still abroad can postpone the time to return to school.
