Rožňava is the first district in Slovakia where a regional hygienist and experts have decided to close the 2nd grade of primary and all secondary schools. Pupils from 41 schools will learn distance learning from Monday (November 29) until December 17.
After a meeting of the district epidemiological commission, Jozef Varga, who is in charge of representing the regional hygienist, told this for TV Markíza.
According to him, kindergartens and primary schools remain open for the time being. “We are going to monitor the epidemiological situation in them, we will decide on a possible closure after the situation worsens,” he told us.
Minister Branislav Gröhling has already announced that the Christmas holidays for schoolchildren will begin on December 17, and the children could return to the benches in the new year.
