According to the CS, all schools will be required to strictly adhere to COVID-19 containment protocols and guidelines, among them mandatory use of face masks, monitoring of body temperature and observance of high levels of hygiene.

The ministry 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.
