Universities reopen two years after COVID-19 closures

Schools and universities across Iran have fully reopened for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic more than two years ago, reports Al Jazeera.

From Sunday, which coincided with the beginning of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in Iran, students and teachers were obliged to attend classes in person across the country.

Some schools and universities had seen partial reopenings before as COVID-19 peaks subsided, but none had fully and consistently reconvened classes physically since the start of the pandemic in Iran in February 2020.
