"According to the quarantine plan developed by the government, the resumption of educational process in the normal mode is possible at the fourth stage of the quarantine exit. Unfortunately, most regions of the country are not ready for this over the high incidence. Therefore, taking into account the government's recommendations, I can say: the distance learning mode will last until the end of quarantine," he told a briefing on July 8.

Moreover, the Department of Education at Kyiv City State Administration recommended that all educational institutions draft plans and develop the distance learning curriculum.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Education Ministry was developing several options for children to attend schools from September 1. The choice will depend on the epidemic situation across the country in autumn.
