The reopening of public schools has been postponed by two weeks in order to test all administrative, technical and teaching staff for coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ministry of Education has said.

It is also based on the recommendations of the national medical taskforce following a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the Kingdom.

Public schools were scheduled to re-open for the administrative, technical and teaching staff on September 6, but following the postponement decision, they will start the new academic year on September 20.
