Ireland extends confinement until April 5, but schools partially reopen on March 1 – Coronavirus

Widespread confinement in Ireland will continue until April 5, while schools will begin to reopen in a phased manner from March 1, Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin announced this Tuesday.

The reopening of schools in the first phase “involves the return to classroom classes of more than 320,000 students”, said the leader of the Irish government.

Children aged 4 and 5, as well as students in the first and second classes, return to face-to-face classes on 1 March. Also on that date, classes for 11th and 12th year students return.

On March 15, students in the third and fourth grades and those in the fifth year return to schools.

On April 12, after the Easter holidays, the remaining students also return to face-to-face classes.

“It is essential that we do not let our guard down. We are carefully and gradually reopening schools because we need to have our children back in the school environment. This represents a great relief for both students and parents,” said Martin.
