Uganda’s Cabinet has approved education institutions to resume the teaching and learning process of other classes. It agreed that it will be staggered manner that will ensure compliance with COVID 19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and safety. The same will apply to Universities.
“In order to complete the academic year and ensure progression, the semi-candidate classes (P6, S3 and S5) should report back to school in the short term and study (in shifts where necessary) with the Candidate classes,” Cabinet said.
All Learners will be required to have two masks which government has tasked parents to provide.
Cabinet has however denied the resumption of early learning education citing that the learner’s cannot implement the Standard Operating Procedures.
“Pre-primary schools should not be re-opened because Learners in this category cannot observe the SOPs and are prone to respiratory infections including COVID-19,” Cabinet said.
“In addition, most of the pre-primary schools are day and therefore, there is a lot of interface between the Learners, Teachers, and Parents hence increasing the risk of infection,” it added.
