Schools in Germany reopen but the coronavirus still exists

The school holidays are coming to an end in parts of Germany. The authorities want a return to "normal" school life. But that's easier said than done.

All of Germany is looking toward the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in the coming days. In 2020, the sparsely populated region in northeastern Germany is the first to start the school year this time.

Summer holidays are staggered in Germany, so not all 16 federal states go on vacation at the same time, clogging the nation’s airports and famed autobahns. This year’s return to school can best be described as a large-scale experiment. […]

If regular classes Monday through Friday can’t be done, the authorities want students to get at least four to five hours’ schooling every week. Even music and sports are back on the curriculum.

The state government says it is feasible because of the low rate of infection and the small number of active cases in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, which has one of the lowest infection rates in the country. But it is still a far cry from “normal.”
