JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Indonesia’s health ministry will set up a range of health facilities and infrastructures in preparation for the new school year 2020/2021.

The upcoming school year is expected to start in July 2020 and will take place during unprecedented times as the coronavirus pandemic shows few signs of slowing down in Indonesia.

Schools that are in the green zone will be allowed to reopen and conduct in-class teaching. Those outside of the green zone will be required to continue offering online learning.

They must also provide adequate health and sanitary facilities such as clean toilets, disinfectants, and handwashing stations equipped with running water, soap, or handwashing liquid.

Additional regulations that must be met include ensuring that classroom capacity will be properly managed.
