Response to COVID-19 : Preparing for School Re-Opening – The Case of China (English)

While COVID-19 (Coronavirus) most immediately affected public health, spillover effects can already be observed in education, stemming largely from extended school closures. The coronavirus outbreak coincided with winter school recess in China and caused a delay in school reopening for the Spring 2020 semester where the original opening date was around mid-February. In recent weeks, as the newly reported cases of coronavirus transmission in China declined significantly, provincial education authorities gradually announced school re-opening dates and plans. On March 9, Qinghai became the first province to reopen schools in the country. As of April 21, all provinces in mainland China have announced planned dates for school reopening.
