Distance learning has been extended at all public schools and education institutions in the UAE.
Students will attend their classes virtually for one more week, a government spokesperson said on Wednesday. This means that classes will be hosted remotely till at least January 21. In-person examinations have been postponed till at least January 28.
These safety measures are in response to the current Covid situation in the country.
Schools across the country were to return to 100 per cent campus learning from the beginning of the new year. However, the Ministry of Education shifted classes at UAE educational institutions online for two weeks.
