Schools/Univercity closure

Schools/Univ. closure: Open

Restrictive measures mandatory between 01 July 2020 to 31 December 2020

All levels of schools are confirmed can reopen from September 1st. By the way, there are currently plans to open schools at the end of September and allow vulnerable students to attend lessons remotely.

1. The smaller the cohort size for in-person learning the lower the risk to students, staff
and their families. Schools are enjoined to keep the size of each bubble or cohort as
small as is feasible.
2. Maximum efforts should be made to maintain an adequate physical distance of 1.5
metres between students.
3. Mixing of students should be minimized as much as possible.
4. Children over 3 years of age should be advised to wear masks and/or visors in the
common areas and on school transport but this is not necessary within their own
classrooms or when they are in the presence of the members of the same
bubble/cluster. Atsenior/secondary school level (for students born in 2009 or earlier),
it is recommended that students wear masks and/or visors at all times, including in
their class, besides in common areas and on transport. Exceptions to the wearing of
mask or visors is when students are exercising. Refer to Public Health guidance on the
use of masks and visors1
.
5. Staff members are required to wear a face mask and/or visor at all times when in the
presence of others (both other staff/ students).
6. Considerations must be made for all staff members in staff rooms to keep an adequate
physical distance of two metres from other staff members. It must be ensured that in
staff rooms, adequate care is taken to avoid mixing of staff members and where desks
are used for corrections, persons always maintain the requisite social distance. If a
system of ‘hot desking’ is in operation, each person should be responsible to clean the
surfaces and shared electronics with suitable agents before and after use. Meetings
should be held virtually wherever possible.
7. Secondary school children generally move around classes depending on their subjects
of choice. Very accurate records would need to be kept of the movements of students

at all times in order to facilitate contract tracing by the Public Health authorities
should there be a COVID-19 positive case. This information would be used when
carrying out the risk assessment by the Health Authorities.
8. Similarly carrying out lessons outdoors dilutes the presence of the viral particles in the
air thus contact tracing would consider this as a mitigating factor against spread when
considering close contacts who should be placed in quarantine.
9. Recommend shorter duration of lessons to reduce accumulating exposure between
students.
10. Enforce the policy of staying home if unwell for both students and staff members.
11. In such a situation of sustained community spread of coronavirus, one must view the
guidance for educational institutions as being bi-directional, on occasion partial/full
school closures may need to be instituted with learning continuing by virtual means
until it is possible to resume in-person learning again.
