A press conference was held on March 19 by the Hainan Provincial COVID-19 Pandemic Prevention and Control headquarters to announce that junior high and senior high grade 3 middle school classes are expected to start the new semester from April 7th, 2020.
It was also announced that the specific start times of other grades will be made public one week in advance depending on the development of the epidemic situation.
Each city, county, and school (including off-campus training institutions) may not start school before receiving a formal notice of school opening.
Before schools re-open, online classes and teaching work in universities and colleges are to be continued in accordance with the relevant requirements.
Education administrative departments at all levels will also effectively strengthen overall guidance on school opening and epidemic prevention and control.
The Provincial Department of Education requires that schools in all places insist on putting the safety and health of teachers and students first, and formulate senior high school and junior high school back to work plans and emergency plans.
The Provincial Education Department will carry out special supervision and inspection on the implementation of the situation in all cities, counties and districts to ensure the safe and orderly opening of schools.
