The Ministry of Health has advised parents against sending to school children with symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever and flu.

The decision was announced on Sunday 9th January 2022 through a statement released by the Ministry of Health.

“Students with COVID-19 symptoms including cough, fever and flu must not be sent to school. Instead, they should stay home and be treated until they recover,” reads part of the statement.

Parents have been also urged to have their children tested if they are 5 years old and above, using the Rapid Test.

“When schools have to request students to be tested, school administrators are instructed to allow parents to test their children using Rapid Test,” adds the statement.

The decision is announced at a time when boarding students have started returning to schools while studies for day students began on Monday 9th January 2022.

The Ministry of Health has reminded parents and educators to continue adhering to COVID-19 preventive measures at school, in classrooms and at home.

In a bid to contain the spread of the virus, the Ministry of Education recently announced that no teacher should be allowed to return to school before receiving the third dose of COVID-19.
