In fact, the closure of kindergartens has never been talked about

Yesterday, the government decided to take new, more stringent measures and introduce a two-week lockdown for all. However, this was preceded by the opinion of a board of experts, which presented its own proposals. Among them was the closure of schools. However, this did not apply to kindergartens or primary schools. Only secondary school students, secondary school students and university students were to remain at home. Full-time tuition was to be limited from 25 November to 3 December.

However, the government decided otherwise and left the schools open. However, this was preceded by a heated debate due to the divergent attitude. Ministers OĽaNO and We are a family were convinced that the situation was so serious that schools should close, but the SaS party exercised its right of veto. The leader for people, Veronika Remišová, did not support the measures taken at all.

Despite the opinion of the council, the Minister of Education for SaS, Branislav Gröhling, was particularly opposed to closing schools. Even his resignation was declining.
