Schools Reopening Rules: The Ministry of Education has released a set of rules that should be followed in the reopening of schools. The rules will affect the mode of learning as well as the interaction between teachers and learners.
According to the schools reopening rules, school activities, including teaching and learning, should take place outside classrooms or lecture halls. In cases where learning must take place in enclosed rooms, institutions must create space between learners to prevent possible Covid-19 infections.
“Create physical distance between learners and place desks or working tables at least one metre apart from one another, and one metre apart from all doors to avoid any physical contact or air contamination,” reads the rules.
Activities that involve physical contact will be substituted by other activities that allow for safe physical distancing.
School fields shall be appropriately marked to ensure learners play different games that avoid touching or holding.
“Assemblies, inter-institution competitions, including games, drama, music, sports and other events that create crowded conditions shall be suspended for the time being. Institutions will hold class mini-assemblies to pray, pass health messages and make announcements,” reads the guidelines.
