According to a paper submitted by the Ministry of Education, Adamu Adamu titled “Guidelines for schools and learning facilities reopening after COVID-19 pandemic closure,” schools are to provide temporary isolation centres, and well equipped medical centres before they can be considered for reopening.

The Ravens learnt that the paper stretches that schools reopening at this critical time need adequate measures and stringent protocols, which will promise safety and protection of the lives of people from the dreadful pandemic disease.

It was considered in the paper that “lives of students and staffs are required to create a referral system.”

It was also stated that any students or staffs with symptoms of COVID-19 would be quarantined immediately.

“It is equally crucial that consultations are held, and communication exchanged with parents, teachers, learners and communities to understand and address common concerns,” the paper reads.
