Tanzanian education authorities on Thursday warned schools and higher learning institutions against slackness in observing protective guidelines on COVID-19 pandemic.
“The government is not thinking of shutting down the schools and higher learning institutions while they have capacity to control the pandemic,” said Joyce Ndalichako, the Minister for Education, Science and Technology.
Speaking after she handed over training facilities to the National Institute of Transport in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam, Ndalichako said the learning institutions should observe guidelines given by health authorities a week ago before the situation becomes unmanageable.
On July 4, health authorities urged the management of schools and other learning institutions to strictly observe COVID-19 protective guidelines as they reopened.
The guidelines included installation of facilities for washing hands with soap, ensuring that face masks and sanitizer are available and used at all times and observing social distancing. Enditem
