The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) in Qatar states that everyone in the country keeps a minimum of 2 meters as a physical distancing measure. This applies to everyone irrespective of where they are. In the case of schools, the government has put in place strict measures to help curb the spread of the virus and ensure that the students attend school in a safe environment.
As of November 1st, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE), adopted rotational, in-person attendance in public and private schools and preschools after mid-term exams. The choice between in-person attendance and distance learning is abolished. The attendance rate in schools was also elevated to a minimum of 42%. The Ministry had also stated that the schools will organize the students' entry and exit from school premises to avoid overcrowding and observe social distancing.

Recently, on November 2nd, we had received multiple clips from our readers of a video taken at Ideal Indian School was making the rounds on social media in which the user said that no proper social distancing was followed and that the students of the school were forced to exit the premises through a single gate. According to the user, the video was captioned “social distancing” as a joke. We are unsure if the school has social distancing protocols in place which were ignored by the students or if the school itself did not have a proper social distancing policy and guides in place.
Today at Ideal Indian School no proper social distancing was followed as students were forced to all exit through a single gate. In the video given below shows how the students had to exit the school premises today.
