Masks not mandatory in schools in Qatar from 3 April 2022: Ministry

Based on prior collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health, and in light of the health indicators of the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) the Ministry of Education and Higher Education has decided, as of next Sunday, April 3, the following:

  • In both public and private schools and kindergartens, all students are not required to wear a mask anymore, and wearing a mask is optional for students who wish to do so.
  • Continuing to perform a rapid antigen test on a weekly basis for unvaccinated and non-recovered students, according to pre-established procedures.

To ensure their safety, the Ministry encourages the students to continue following all necessary preventive procedures.

The Ministry also takes this opportunity to congratulate everyone on the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan in the year 1443AH, and hope that God Almighty accepts fasting and prayer.
