Adjusting To The New Normal As Schools Reopen Amidst Covid-19

As the president communicated, today schools reopen officially all over the country for the first time in several months. This however is only for the candidates and finalists. Their counterparts will wait for next year to join school again.

There has been a lot of pulling ropes about school reopening but it seems the ministry of Education was ready.

According to their calendar, students in primary and secondary are expected to register with the Uganda National Examinations Board between October and November. They are expected to sit for their final examinations around March, April and May. A number of schools have opened and are operating under the guidelines of the ministry of health in order to keep the students safe.

The transport sector has also prepared for the reopening of schools in a different way. The leadership of Uganda Taxi Operators and Drivers Association (UTODA), warned drivers not to hike prices. Normally when taxi drivers realize they are on high demand, they escalate prices which inconveniences passengers.

Drivers on the other hand requested the government to allow them carry parents who will be carrying their children to count them as one person.

Schools reopen officially today (15th/October/2020) and there is a lot to look into and check. The curfew time needs to be checked because the traffic jam is obviously going to be heavy. Especially around the city. The traffic officers need to be more vigilant.

They have to make sure that all the taxis, Vans and motorcycles follow the MOH issued SOPs. This is the new normal and one way or the other, people have to embrace it.
