WHO convenes virtual meeting for European countries on re-opening of schools

The WHO European Regional Office will convene a virtual meeting for all 53 countries on re-opening of schools and COVID19 on 31 August where concrete actions will be discussed to ensure children receive proper education in safe settings, said Hans Kluge WHO Regional Director for Europe at the press conference, ONA reports.

”Such options might include heightened hygiene and physical distancing in school settings for all, and the introduction of targeted measures quickly and effectively to suit local circumstances open schools where virus levels are low; adjust school schedules and limit pupil numbers where cases are more widespread; and consider keeping schools closed temporarily in areas where community transmission is high,” he said.
