From November 8, Bulgarian students can return to in-person learning in municipalities where the 14-day morbidity is over 500 per 100,000 population, but this can happen only in a safe environment. 

To this end, teachers who do not have a green certificate, as well as students will have to be tested twice a week. 

Where the incidence of Covid-19 is between 250 and 500 per 100,000 inhabitants, school principals may choose between 100% attendance and tests twice a week or without testing and 50% attendance training, in accordance with a procedure determined by the Minister of Education. 

In the case of a 14-day morbidity below 250 per 100,000 inhabitants, testing of children and staff will not be required. 

Depending on the discretion of the educational institutions and the established organization, in-person learning can be introduced for separate schools or even separate classes.
At a briefing later today, the Minister of Education Nikolay Denkov announced that the return of students from the 1st to 4th grade to classrooms will most probably happen after November 10.
