    Schools in the greater Seoul area will finally reopen next Monday after daily new coronavirus infections stayed below 200 for nearly two weeks.

    She said the ministry will discuss with health authorities to decide whether to expand offline classes even after that.

    Yoo urged schools to comply strictly with quarantine guidelines so that the nationwide college entrance exam can be conducted without a hitch on Dec. 3.
