UAE postpones school reopening, exams as COVID infection rate rises

UAE schools and universities are expected to extend remote learning until January 21 after COVID-19 cases in the country surged past the 2,500 daily infected mark.

All in-person exams have been postponed to January 28, according to a statement from the government body, reports UAE national media, WAM.

However, the UAE’s National Crisis & Emergency Management Authority (NCEMA) said the decision is applicable at the national level, but that local authorities in each emirate can decide independently.
