The Ghana Education Service (GES) has cautioned teachers, learners and other staff who are sick or feel sick to attend school. As part of the fundamental principles to ensure that both teaching and non-teaching staff stay safe in schools, the service has adopted this strategy to help falten the pandemic curve.
In the schools reopening guidelines document endorsed by the Director-General of GES, Prof. Kwasi Opoku Amankwa sighted by listengh.net, it indicates that to build a more resilient education system to help to ensure continuous learning and even during emergencies, this measure is highly essential.
According to him, these guidelines are part of measures that the GES has put in place to ensure that all our institutions remain safe. Through these guidelines, GES seeks to promote the observance of all protocols of the novel virus to make schools safe for learners, staff and education workers.
Meanwhile, other basic principles such as hygienic protocols, face masking, social distancing et al will be ensured when school resumes.
