SHANGHAI (REUTERS) – China’s financial hub Shanghai said on Sunday (Aug 14) that it will reopen all primary, middle and high schools, as well as kindergartens and nurseries, on Sept 1 after months of Covid-19 closures.

The city will require all teachers and students to take nucleic acid tests for the coronavirus every day before leaving campus, according to a statement published by the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission.

Shanghai shut all schools in mid-March before the city’s two-month lockdown to combat its worst Covid-19 outbreak in April and May.
