Teachers and students must wear masks when classes re­sume next Tuesday.

This is because of an increase in cases of COVID-19.

Ministry of Education Perma­nent Secretary Dr Anjeela Jokhan said the schools were reminded to reinforce the coronavirus safety protocols.

In a circular sent to all schools, Dr Jokhan said it was the respon­sibility of heads of schools to en­sure this was followed at all times.

“Keeping in mind that coronavi­rus is still present in the commu­nity, the schools are reminded to reinforce the coronavirus safety protocols,” she said.

“If required, the head of schools must organise a refresher session for teachers and students to make sure everyone is briefed on corona­virus safety protocols.

“Heads are to ensure the school is kept clean, which includes class­rooms, compound, wash areas and the general appearance of the school.”

She said heads of schools were to ensure there was enough supplies of personal protective equipment in stock and readily available for usage.
