Studies will resume at the British School of Bahrain on November 1, 2020, the Public and Media Relations Directorate at the Ministry of Education has announced.
The school had sanitised all its facilities and was assured that the few infected cases and their contacts had completed the home confinement period ahead of re-opening, based on the precautionary measures and the health protocol issued by the National Medical Taskforce for Combating Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Health Ministry called on school principals to contact the relevant Education Ministry’s directorates when COVID-19 cases are detected to coordinate with the Public Health Directorate on the procedures to be followed in case there is a decision to close a school, be it public or private.
Earlier this month, the Health Ministry, in coordination with the Education Ministry, suspended studies in the British School of Bahrain for ten days.
The ministry said that the school would not reopen until the Public Health Directorate got assured that no new cases were registered during the ten days and that the school was completely free of any infected cases.
