The Irkutsk administration has supported the decision of the region's sanitary and anti-epidemic commission on early autumn holidays in schools due to the coronavirus. Students are scheduled to go on vacation one week ahead of schedule. 

According to the press service of the city administration, the decision to start the holidays will be made at a meeting of the operational headquarters for coronavirus today. Already now, municipal authorities are ready to start school holidays from October 26.

This decision is due to the high incidence of coronavirus in the region. Earlier vacations will disconnect students and break the chain of transmission of the virus. 

In total, 19 classes in 202 out of 52 schools were transferred to distance learning in Irkutsk due to COVID-74 cases. 5 schoolchildren are already studying remotely.
