Students and education staff arriving from virus hit countries to be quarantined

Students and education staff arriving from the coronavirus hit countries will be quarantined for a period of 14 days, the Education Ministry said today.

Accordingly, those arriving from China, South Korea,  Italy and other countries that have reported an influx of cases  will be subject to this procedure.

As COVID-19 cases are reported from approximately 70 countries across the world, the Ministry of Health has requested the Education Ministry to inform all individuals involved in the education sector in foreign countries that they would be quarantined for two weeks upon arriving in the island.
