The Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force has changed the resumption date for Primary Six, Junior Secondary School 3 and Senior Secondary School 3 students in the state.
This follows a meeting of stakeholders which lasted over two hours on Monday.
A statement made by the Mr Taiwo Adisa Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, confirmed that the Commissioner for Education, Barrister Olasunkanmi Olaleye, and experts from the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) had been going around schools to determine the compliance level with the COVID-19 prevention protocols.
The statement read: “By the new arrangement, Teachers are to resume on Monday, June 29, 2020, while students in critical classes including Primary 6, JSS3 and SS3 will resume a week later on July 6, 2020.
“As of Monday, June 22, no fewer than 372 Heads of Schools have been trained by the EOC on the management of the COVID-19 containment procedures, while each of the schools is to appoint an Incident Manager, who will ensure compliance with the approved COVID-19 protocol.
“Each student is expected to wear face masks, while the schools are to prepare well laid out handwashing spots to guarantee regular washing of hands by the students and teachers.
“The task force also resolved that by July 15, the state government would have reviewed the situation with the schools and come to a conclusion whether the remaining classes would be able to resume or whether the students would have to wait to resume the new session in September 2020.”
