Ministers may shut schools starting Thursday after virus czar pulls alarm

14 3 6

Schools may be told to close their doors on Thursday, a day earlier than planned, after the country’s top coronavirus official urged policy-makers to close down classes immediately amid an unprecedented outbreak.

On Sunday, the cabinet voted to allow schools to remain open through Friday, with a nationwide lockdown set to go into effect at 2 p.m. that day.

But on Tuesday, ministers in the so-called coronavirus cabinet voted to recommend shutting them starting Thursday, according to several reports carried in Hebrew media. Schools will remain open Wednesday.
