• Monitor for possible Covid19 related symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, loss of sense of smell or taste, sore throat, or continual dry cough.

If these symptoms present for students or staff members, or if either a student or staff member has had close contact with a person diagnosed with Covid19, they are required to remain at home and to seek the appropriate medical advice.

To assist with the secure return of students to their respective schools and to ensure that each school is able to manage its administrative and instructional functions, parents and guardians are requested to adhere to the details as advised by their child’s school. The Ministry looks forward to the cooperation of all stakeholders in this regard.

The public is also informed that further details on the resumption of face-to-face instruction will be provided by the Ministry of Education at a press conference to be held at the Ministry’s headquarters building on Monday afternoon, 22nd February 2021, at 3 p.m.
