20 Schools to Reopen Next Month in Pilot Phase, Ministries Say

The government will allow 20 private schools to reopen next month in order to pilot Covid-19 school safety guidelines, according to a letter dated Tuesday from the Council of Ministers.

The letter, signed by In Virakcheat, a secretary of state at the Council of Ministers and board chair of the Cambodian Higher Education Association, said the 20 “high standard” schools, located in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Battambang provinces, must comply with health and safety measures set by the Education Ministry, Health Ministry and World Health Organization (WHO).

Schools have been shut nationwide since March 16, as coronavirus cases jumped in Cambodia and around the world.
