In municipalities where the 14-day cumulative morbidity rate of Covid-19 per 100,000 people exceeds 200, on-site studying for 12th graders can be organized no more than two days a week in the subjects where centralized examinations are taken. 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.
