Primary and secondary school students get week-long holiday

Primary and secondary school students are getting a week-long holiday starting Monday.

The government extended the usual fall holiday by two days in order to create a longer break and help curb the spread of the epidemic.

All schools were ordered to start operating online anyway since the decision was made because of the worsening situation.

Parents have been asked not to let their children out to play together and minimize contacts with others outside the family circle.
