All students in Ho Chi Minh City have been allowed to go back to school in early March as the COVID-19 pandemic has been put under control again in the southern metropolis.

The municipal People’s Committee on Wednesday issued a document stating that students and learners of local schools, universities, and other educational institutions will resume their normal classes on March 1.

The city’s Department of Education and Training and Department of Labor, War Invalids, and Social Affairs will provide local schools with guidance on pandemic prevention and control measures.

Students who have been to virus-hit areas will be required to fill out health declaration forms.

Stern penalties will be imposed upon those failing to declare their health status or violating rules on COVID-19 prevention and control.

All students, teachers, and other staff members will have to complete online health declaration on a daily basis.

Following the Lunar New Year holiday in mid-February, all students were required to switch to remote learning until the end of the month due to the complicated COVID-19 developments.

The city recorded 36 community-based COVID-19 cases between February 6 and 11.

A total of 35 locations in 10 districts and Thu Duc City were sealed off to prevent the disease from spreading further into the community.

As of Tuesday afternoon, lockdown had been lifted from all of these locations.

The municipal Department of Education and Training on the same day proposed that all students be allowed to return to school on March 1.
