(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 26 – Premier Mario Draghi told a press conference on Friday that Italy’s schools up to the first year of middle school are set to reopen.
    Draghi commented after being asked what had been decided on whether schools should reopen in high-contagion-risk red zones after the Easter holidays following a meeting of the ‘cabina di regia.’ COVID task force.
    Around eight in 10 pupils in Italy are currently doing lessons via distance learning due to COVID-19 restrictions.
    The government ordered all schools to switch to distance learning in zones.
    It also recently changed the criteria to make it easier for regions to be classed as red zones.
    This, coupled with the recent surge in infections, means that half of the country is currently a red zone.
    Furthermore, the government also gave local authorities the power to close schools in specific areas of high contagion, even if the region as a whole is not a red zone. (ANSA).
