Unvaccinated teachers and students above age of 16 are required to show a negative coronavirus-detecting PCR test result to be allowed in, Al Anba newspaper has reported.
“This requirement is still mandatory until now,” Al Anba quoted well-innformed sources as saying.
“The requirement of presenting a negative result certificate to enter schools will be applied unless the government sees upon a recommendation from health authorities to take another decision as unvaccinated teachers and students above 16 are the only two categories obligated to present this test,” the sources added.
The government has already scrapped this requirement for schoolchildren under 16.
The second semester in Kuwait was originally scheduled to kick off on February 13. But the Education Ministry postponed it to March 6 for a public holiday marking the Independence Day, the Liberation Day and Al Israa Wal Miraj (Prophet Mohammed’s night journey, PBUH).
