A new MoE and NCEMA protocol update allows the resumption of all activities and events in educational establishments, and permits parents to attend all student events and activities, provided they comply with preventive measures, including wearing face-masks in closed spaces and the Green Pass Protocol on the Al Hosn app.

The step supports a national effort to achieve sustainable recovery and "return to normalcy", and comes into force today.

School trips organised by educational facilities are "fully restored", although all those involved are required to wear face-masks while on school buses. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated staff and students will be allowed to go on such trips, "provided they have green status on their Al Hosn app".

Following the Green Pass Protocol is mandatory for all visitors of educational establishments, along with students aged 16 and above, educational staff and personnel. Students aged under 16, need to conduct a PCR test on a monthly basis.

The new updates also outlined the procedures for the closure of educational institutions in the case of confirmed COVID-19 infections. A school would close for three days if the infection rate exceeds 15 percent of the total attendance.

As per the updated protocol, those in who come into contact with COVID-19 positive cases are no longer required to quarantine. The Ministry of Education and NCEMA noted that all the updates are applicable nationwide, "while implementation at the local level will be carried out in coordination with local emergency, crises and disasters committees in each emirate".
