Schools Must Organize Before Reopening – Government

Dr. Chris Baryomunsi, the Information minister said there are very many proposals which the national COVID-19 taskforce and Gov’t need to discuss before they can reopen schools.

He said this is the only way they will come up with a lasting solution to the government.

He also asked the public to disregard the circulating news of Government’s plan to re-open in a next fortnight.

‘’I saw a newspaper reporting that schools will be opening in two weeks’ time. That’s not correct,’’ he said.

On Wednesday Baryomunsi said that however much government wants to open schools there are many issues that require consideration.

These will, if carefully considered, hinder the resurgence of the Covid-19 cases, as it happened after the reopening last year.

Further he said the technical committee comprising of scientists and the MOH has developed some guidelines. The committee will present these drafted guidelines to the COVID-19 taskforce and cabinet for discussion before any decision is made.

‘’We have not taken any decisions of when schools will be opened. But this September, we expect many dozens of vaccines to come into the country and we should be able to vaccinate as many people as we can,’’ he added.

However, Baryomunsi stressed that the days of reopening schools might not be far, but that the focus is on vaccination. This is why the reopening of schools will not be rushed.

To top that, he said they must ew organize institutions so by the time student’s return, all SOPs and other measures are in place.
