Dr. Abdhullatif Al Khal, Chair of the National Health Strategic Group on COVID-19, has stated that the blended learning in schools with 30 percent capacity will be permitted in phase 1, which will commence on May 28. During a press conference on Qatar TV yesterday, Dr. Al Khalf said that in the second phase, which begins from June 18, the blended learning in schools will continue with the same 30 percent capacity. 
Dr. Al Khal said that, “In the third phase, which will begin from July 9, the blended learning will continue, however the capacity in schools will be increased from 30 to 50 percent.” All nurseries and childcare centres will reopen at a maximum capacity of 30 percent in phase 1 but all staff must have received full vaccination. 
In phase 2, the capacity of all nurseries and childcare will still have the same capacity of 30 percent.  “However, the capacity will be increased to 50 percent in phase 3 while all staff must be vaccinated,” said Dr. Al Khal.
He highlighted that the education centres for people with disability will be allowed to hold 1:5 education sessions and the instructors must be vaccinated in all three phases. “The education and training centers will be allowed to operate at 30 percent capacity and all trainers must be vaccinated during phase 1 and 2,” he added. However, the capacity will be increased to a maximum 50 percent for all education and training centres in phase 3.
