The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) said that It's not mandatory for students enrolled in Dubai's private schools to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit negative PCR test results to go back to in-person learning.

KHDA clarified that eligible school staff who do not wish to have the vaccine must submit a negative PCR test each week.

It also announced that students will be back at school for face-to-face learning by October 3.

From the start of the academic year until September 30, parents will have the choice of distance learning or face-to-face learning for their children.

After this date, students who wish to continue with distance learning must provide a medical certificate issued by Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

Class groups or grade/year levels may temporarily switch to distance learning if positive cases of COVID-19 are detected.
