Poland will likely keep older classes of primary schools at home and switch them to online or hybrid learning, PM Mateusz Morawiecki told the parliament on Wednesday, three days after most secondary schools moved to online teaching.

In general, Polish primary schools teach students aged 7-15.

Morawiecki said the decision will likely be made on Wednesday afternoon at a daily sitting of the government's crisis team.

From Monday, all secondary schools and universities in the so-called red zones, where the coronavirus count is the highest, were switched to distance learning. The rest of the country is now using hybrid learning for secondary school or university students.
