According to Minister of Education Professor G.L. Peiris, all schools on the island will be closed until next Friday (May 07).
Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 numbers, the Education Minister announced on April 27 that all schools across the country would be closed until the 30th of April.
However, the reopening of schools has been further postponed today (May 01) due to a rise in virus infections in the country over the last few days.
The health and education authorities will make a decision on the reopening of schools after May 07 as a result.
