All Students in Bucharest Can Return to School on Wednesday

BUCHAREST — All students in Bucharest can return to school on Wednesday after the capital’s coronavirus infection rate fell below one per 1,000 residents, officials announced Tuesday.

Before new restrictions were implemented in late March, Romania was facing rising coronavirus infections forcing many schools to operate a hybrid learning system of online lessons and some physical attendance.

If a child tests positive for the coronavirus after schools reopen Wednesday, classes will be moved online with the approval of the authorities.

This week, Romania recorded less than 400 daily coronavirus infections, its lowest daily rate since last July.

Romania’s government is aiming to fully vaccinate 5 million of its 19 million people by June 1. So far, 7 million doses have been administered but only 3 million people are fully vaccinated.
