Students at all international schools in Hong Kong will return to face-to-face classes from April 19. Local primary schools and kindergartens can also reopen; local secondary schools will resume in-person classes after the Diploma of Secondary Education exams, which will start on April 22. 

All kindergarten, primary and secondary classes at both local and international schools across Hong Kong have been closed since January. International schools in Hong Kong have been allowed to continue with online teaching throughout March and April, while local schools have had to break early for the summer holiday in March. 

The reopening of schools was announced by Chief Executive Carrie Lam as the country moves towards relaxing Covid-19 measures; this also sees a lifting of the ban on flights from nine countries and reducing quarantine.

Hong Kong has largely aligned itself with mainland China’s “zero-Covid-19” policy, which aims to totally stamp out outbreaks. At the same, many other countries are changing their approach to living with the virus.
