The Rivers State Ministry of Education has urged all schools to adhere to all COVID-19 health protocols to enable them to operate, as schools reopen on Monday, October 5, 2020.
Commissioner for Education, Professor Kaniye Ebeku, stated this at a meeting with Vice Chancellors of the state-owned universities and Heads of polytechnics and colleges.
“Schools are to reopen from Monday, October 5, 2020. However, there are conditions schools must comply with to ensure that we not only reopen but remain open,” she said.
He said all schools billed to reopen on that date must ensure that they install and provide handwashing facilities around the campus and all persons entering the campus environment must be subjected to temperature checks.
Ebeku stressed that schools must ensure that there was only one entry point into their campuses and must enforce and adhere to physical and social distancing.
He noted that schools must provide a temporary holding centre for people who show symptoms of COVID-19, adding that where practicable, schools should adopt blended learning approach in instructing students.
Speaking further, the commissioner advocated thorough sensitisation of students and teachers on the need to adhere to all COVID-19 protocols.
