Distance education will be activated for all schools in the Emirate. Nurseries, however, will have in-person learning, the Emirate’s Emergencies and Crisis Team announced on Friday.

Umm Al Quwain is the second Emirate to adopt remote learning for students as a Covid safety measure. Authorities in Abu Dhabi had earlier announced the temporary shift to e-classes. Public schools across the country will go online as well.

Education regulators in Dubai, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah, however, said in-person learning will continue in schools. Strict Covid safety measures will be implemented as schools receive students.
