Monday, 24 May will mark more restriction relaxations in Czechia. High school students will be allowed to return to schools in full regime. Universities will also be allowed to reopen. On the same day, hotels and other types of accommodation will resume their business as well and indoor gyms and sports areas will be able to welcome up to 30 people at a time.
After a special meeting, the government decided on further easements of the coronavirus restrictions. Middle school (6th to 9th grade) students will be allowed to return to school in 7 regions on 3 May. The reopening date of shops changed to 10 May. The reopening date of the bodycare services stays the same.
The beginning of a new school year is slowly approaching and many people – especially teachers and parents – are worried about what may possibly come next. Summer parties will be replaced by opened schools with a high concentration of children in one place which could – according to some experts – lead to the coronavirus spreading faster. On the other hand, some experts believe that the newest strains of the virus are weaker and thus less dangerous than the previous ones.
