The second stage of primary schools, secondary schools and grammar schools throughout Slovakia will be transferred from Monday (December 13) to five-day distance education, and the Christmas holidays will begin on Saturday, December 18. These will last until January 9.
The stores will open from Friday, December 10, for the vaccinated and people who have overcome COVID-19. “We are talking about shops, gastro not yet. Services are due to be released from December 17 and hotels and tourism to be released from December 25. It is possible that after negotiations and discussions with experts, it will be a week earlier, “said Minister of Health Vladimír Lengvarský.
Prime Minister Eduard Heger added that services for churches in the OP regime with limited capacities should also be available from Friday. A curfew and a state of emergency should continue to apply.
The chairwoman of the SaS parliamentary group, Anna Zemanová, added that distance education for the Christmas holidays is a compromise for opening shops. According to her, more freedom for the vaccinated is the motivation to be vaccinated. He sees this as the only way out of the pandemic.
She believes that schools will open after the holidays, she pointed to a high percentage of vaccinated teachers and students. “There will certainly be an effort to ensure that where schools are vaccinated, where it works, they are open in the same way as the school vending machine is set up. This will be promoted by SaS and the Minister of Education,” she announced.
