31 municipalities on the 'safe school' list in Latvia

Starting next week, 31 municipalities may open schools for pupils in grades 1-6 and 12, according to Disease Prevention and Control Center (SPKC) May 12.

Last week, the figure was also 31, so the number has stayed the same but there are changes in the list.

From Monday, May 17, in municipalities where the two-week morbidity rate per 100,000 people does not exceed 200, on-site education can be organized for students from grades 1st to 6th and students of 12th grade. For students of grades from 7th to 11th on-site studying can take place on a rotating basis so that the classes in the educational institution do not overlap. In order to resume on-site studying, the educational institution must provide epidemiological requirements and weekly testing of staff.

In these municipalities up to 5 on-site classes held outdoors per week can be organized for students of other grades and up to a maximum of 10 people per group.

From 7 April, it is also  possible to organize on-site classes outdoors for groups for up to 10 people in vocational education, interest education and artistic collectives.
