Ministry Of Education Prohibits Visits And Parties In Schools In Fear Of Ebola

In a letter dated 28th October 2022, Ismael Mulindwa, the Director of Basic Education has on behalf of the Ministry of Education written to all schools halting any kind of visit or party in schools due to the fear of Ebola virus spread.

This is to take place with immediate effect. He says the National Taskforce and the MOH have advised schools to remain open. However, some restrictions have to be observed.

“Given that some positive cases have now been confirmed among learners from families of known contacts, it is necessary to strengthen the existing infection prevention measures at the school level.”

“In this regard, the Ministry of Education and Sports has, with immediate effect, suspended all school visitation days and leavers parties. This is until the end of the current school term. Learners in boarding institutions are also discouraged from making non-essential trips out of the school,” the letter read in part.

They advised schools to observe all the SOPs put in place to stop the spread of Ebola. This comes at a time when students are just about to sit for their final exams.

The question is, how are schools going to manage day scholars and boarding scholars in the same place.
