South-East Governors Ask Teachers To Undergo Compulsory Covid-19 Tests Before Resumption
The South-East governors have mandated all teachers in the South-East region to undergo Covid-19 tests before the reopening of schools. The Chairman of the forum who is also the Governor of Ebonyi state, Mr. Dave Umahi, revealed this during a press briefing after the meeting of the South-East Governors Forum.
He also revealed that there are plans to fix the infrastructure of the schools in such a way that will accommodate the protocols laid down by the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
Complaining about the inadequacies each school would have to face, the Governor of Ebonyi state that schools would only be re-opened in the region after a safest time has been determined following the review of the current infrastructures in school.
He said, “How many of our schools have running water and how many sanitisers have been provided for them?
“We will then review our position and tell our people the safest time to re-open schools with our health workers to enforce the NCDC protocols.”
