Opposition ‘concerned’ about COVID-19 cases in schools


The Opposition, People’s National Party wants the Government to engage school administrators to find out what is happening in the nation’s schools regarding COVID-19.

In the past week, several schools across the island had to revert to the online teaching and learning modality to facilitate deep-cleaning, following reported cases.

Opposition Spokesperson on Education, Dr. Angela Brown-Burke said that with the number of daily COVID-19 infections over the three hundred mark, focus must be placed on what’s happening in schools.

Although some of the COVID-19 health and safety protocols are no longer mandatory, Dr. Brown-Burke suggests that some of these protocols should still be followed in schools.
