“In consultation with Ministry of Health we have agreed schools to reopen when daily COVID-19 cases reduce consistently for 14 days. Social and physical distancing is the most critical factor in ensuring safety of learners,” said CS Magoha. “”Inter-county movement of students will cause severe challenges with high incidents of infections. We are happy to inform Kenyans that the president accepted the recommendations. Based on this disturbing trend of COVID-19 cases rising steadily, Education stakeholders have shelved the initial proposal to reopen schools in September for Class 8 and Form 4 learners.”

Magoha was speaking on Tuesday at KICD Nairobi accompanied by Education stakeholders. He said the universities will only reopen only when they meet the requirements. “Members of the senate and faculty must agree how they are going to do a phased reopening,” he said.
