Moreover, the decision to conduct the COVID-19 examination is coherent with MoEHE’s announcement last week, stating that all educational institutions will return to study with full attendance of students at 100 percent of the approved capacity of the school building.
MoEHE pointed out that those who have recovered from the virus are excluded from the examination procedure.
Furthermore, the Qatari Cabinet also announced a series of decisions set to take effect from Sunday, under the country's gradual lifting of the COVID-19 restrictions plan.
