Over 10,000 schools across the country have resumed in-classroom learning, with another 20,000 to follow. Dr Suwanchai Wattanayingcharoenchai from the Department of Health says over 35,000 schools around Thailand have met the Public Health Ministry’s requirements for a safe re-opening. However, under the “Thai Stop Covid Plus” assessment system, final approval needs to come from the communicable disease committee in each province.

Around 20,000 schools yet to open are expected to be approved in the coming 2 weeks, according to a Thai PBS World report. Suwanchai says the schools are currently in the process of improving facilities to meet the strict criteria for on-site learning. He adds that all schools will be subject to regular checks to ensure they still meet the required standards.

Meanwhile, Thai PBS World reports that the governor of Bangkok, Aswin Kwanmuang, says schools in the capital are expected to re-open for onsite learning from November 15. He adds that over 96% of teachers in the schools under the administration of City Hall are now fully vaccinated, as are 94% of other school staff. The governor says 92% of students have chosen to be vaccinated. 90% of them have received the first dose and 76% are fully vaccinated.

Bangkok schools must pass the same Public Health Ministry assessment and adhere to safety measures outlined by the Education Ministry and the CCSA.
