The announcement was made by the emirate's emergency, crisis and disaster management team in cooperation with the Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA).

The authorities carried out multiple inspections before giving nurseries the go-ahead to resume in-classroom sessions.

According to the official guidelines, it is mandatory for all the staff members of nurseries to take a COVID-19 PCR test every two weeks.

Sharjah had earlier extended 100 per cent distance learning in all government and private schools as well as nurseries until the end of the spring term on March 25.
