The Hanoi Department of Education and Training has recommended local schools should reopen from March 2.
Under the proposal sent to the municipal people’s committee, the Hanoi Department of Education and Training said that if there are no locally-infected Covid-19 cases by March 2, then local schools could reopen. It means that Hanoi would have witnessed no community transmission patients for 14 days by then.

Despite positive signs, the Hanoi Centre for Disease Control advised local residents to strictly conform to Covid-19 prevention regulations.
Meanwhile, HCM City has decided to allow local students to return schools from March 1.
