All schools and kindergartens in Kyiv will resume their work on Wednesday, May 5. At the same time, the educational process in schools will not be extended for summer, mayor of the capital Vitali Klitschko said.
“On May 5, Kyiv will restore the educational process in schools, kindergartens, institutions of vocational education, colleges and higher educational institutions. All 428 schools in the capital and 572 kindergartens will be opened. I also note that the educational process in Kyiv schools will not be extended for the summer.” Students will complete the school year as usual, at the end of May. Since during the lockdown, classes were held remotely, according to the approved program,” Klitschko said at an online briefing on Friday.
He said that the heads of educational institutions received an order for enhanced disinfection and regular ventilation of the premises.
“I want to separately address the parents. Be attentive to the health of your children. At the first symptoms of the disease, contact your family doctor. And explain to your children the need to follow simple but important rules. Because, as we can see, the virus has become more aggressive towards children as well. Many of them get sick in a more severe form and with complications,” Klitschko said.
The mayor also reported that on Saturday, May 1, Kyiv returns to the boundaries of the “orange” zone of epidemiological danger. Shops, malls, markets and fairs, catering establishments, gyms and fitness centers will reopen in the city.
Also, all the public transport in the capital will operate as usual, in compliance with previously defined anti-epidemic standards.
