SULAIMANI — Head of the Education Unit in Kirkuk Parwin Fatih said on Sunday (April 18) that in-person classes will resume for most students inside the city two days per week.

In rural areas, where internet access is not as strong, in-person classes will be held five days per week. 

Fatih also said that education officials decided to resume classes under self-protection measures after a series of meetings on the issue.

On March 10, KRG decided to suspended in-person classes and switched back to online learning because of a new wave of coronavirus infections.
