The COVID-testing of teachers and the school staff has started across Georgia since the beginning of February, the Georgian Ministry of Education reports.
As a result of two-week intensive testing, 0.5% of school personnel tested positive for the virus. A total of 46 300 employees of the public and private schools have undergone COVID-testing across the country.
The Ministry provides an opportunity for teachers being in the risk group to contact the school administration with the request to continue working in a distance format.
Effective February 15, in-person school studies will resume in the remaining three big Georgian cities: Tbilisi, Rustavi, and Kutaisi.
