Rules and recommendations

Preschools stay open and children can attend in person. Face masks are not compulsory for children in preschools.

If you notice your child is showing symptoms of Covid-19, do not send them to preschool. This will prevent the infection of other children and their families. If a teacher notices signs of infection, they put the child in isolation and contact the parents. The parents pick up the child and contact their doctor. If the doctor confirms that these are coronavirus symptoms, they issue a test request and advise on further steps.

If more children in a class are infected, the Regional Public Health Authority (Krajská hygienická stanice or KHS in Czech) can recommend that the entire class be quarantined. If a higher number of teachers and children is infected, the entire preschool can be closed.
