The ministry has also announced that all schools that had been used as quarantine centres have been fumigated under the supervision of the ministry of health in readiness for re-opening.

“Although physical distancing will remain a challenge, it should not be used as a bottleneck to keep any child away from school,” Magoha said.

Schools have been linked to the nearest public health facility prior to being re-opened.

The ministry has also encouraged teachers to continuously provide psychosocial and spiritual support to learners and school support staff during the duration of the current pandemic.
