Sarajevo Canton students from first to fifth grade will no longer be required to wear face masks in the classroom, the Education Ministry announced on Monday.
The instruction comes as a result of changes in the guidelines on organisation and implementation of work in primary and secondary schools in Sarajevo Canton in 2020/2021 school year.
Unlike the students from fifth to eighth grade in all elementary schools in Sarajevo Canton, who were attending combined online and onsite classes, the junior students have been in the classroom since the beginning of this school year.
The latest coronavirus reports in Sarajevo Canton show there are around 1,500 confirmed active cases on its territory.
Since the last update on Sunday, the Sarajevo University Clinical Centre confirmed four new Covid-19 patients while three passed away.
