In line with the updated guidelines from the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, they will resume on August 3 to prepare for mandatory public exams."
He added that the resumption will follow the established public health guidelines and will also, be strictly monitored. Boarding activities are not included so that means, the permission to reopen only applies to day schools.
