Stenbock House, 27 April 2021 – Today, the government decided in principle to allow students of grades 9 and 12 to engage in contact learning starting from 3 May. Learning must be carried out pursuant to all COVID-19 safety rules.

The government will reassess the possibility of allowing other students to engage in contact learning next week, when more information will be available on the trends of the spread of the coronavirus, which will also be affected by the school holidays and the foreign trips taken during them.

If a student has been abroad during their school holidays, they are subject to a 10-day period of self-isolation or two PCR coronavirus tests no fewer than six days apart. The first test may be taken in a foreign country up to 72 hours before arriving in Estonia or immediately after entering Estonia. Students and young people may return to school and hobby groups only after the second negative test result. There are some countries in the case of which the self-isolation obligation does not apply – the list of them is available on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The cross-border traveller’s declaration must be filled out upon entering Estonia.
