Upon the sensitivity of our people to comply with mask, distance and hygiene measures, more children now have the opportunity to go to school," said Selçuk, "Today, face to face education began in the entire country for preschool, primary school, 8th and 12th grade students. In low and medium risk cities, children are going to school for certain days and hours within the framework of defined measures.
