Schools Reopening: Education minister reveals final decision-checkout the details

The Minister of Education and Sports, Janet Museveni has revealed that for schools to be fully reopened, the country will need to have vaccinated all learners and teaching staff in order to control the further spread of Covid-19.

According to to the minister, this is the only way to guarantee the safety of both learners and teachers thus calling upon teachers and learners above 18 years of age, to go for a COVID-19 vaccination jab.

This follows today’s engagements between the education and health ministries to align efforts towards getting teachers and learners vaccinated to control the spread of covid-19 when schools are reopened.

“Getting our teaching staff and learners vaccinated is first and foremost for their own personal wellbeing and safety. As you all know, delivery of learning is a highly interactive physical process in the context of our country.” Hon Janet said.

The first lady reiterated the President’s conditions if schools are to be reopened for physical learning including having a sizeable number of learners, teachers, and non-teaching staff receiving at least one jab.

Meanwhile, for learners between 12-16 years, Hon Janet says the health ministry shall inform the public once COVID-19 vaccines that are approved for the age range have become available.
