No Fixed Dates For School Reopening

The Federal Government says there are no fixed dates for school reopening due to the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the nation.

This was according to the Minsiter for Health, Osagie Enahire who said the country will do so, unless it’s safe to return to schools.

Ehanire, while addressing journalists during the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja over the weekend, said no date had been fixed for reopening of schools.

“There is no fixed date on schools’ resumption. The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 is studying the situation, carrying out reviews every two and four weeks to access the situation and judge when it is safe”, he said.

“The Federal Government is taking very seriously the balance between safety and preventing disease explosion, and the opening of schools.

“We are encouraging schools to embrace online training and education as much as possible.

“As soon as the details are established and the risk of transmission is measured and established, then schools will reopen.

“We are aware of what is happening in neighbouring countries through the organ known as the West Africa Health Organisation.
