Mass testing of thousands of teachers and other personnel in education was carried out in what was the largest such testing operation yet, as kindergartens and the first three grades of primary school to reopen in nine of Slovenia’s 12 regions on Tuesday.

While no disruption was reported from testing, there was some uncertainty as to whether the reopening plan would be set in motion due to the confirmation of the UK strain of coronavirus. After clearance from the National Institute of Public Health and the Education Ministry, it was decided to proceed with the reopening.
