St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The results of students in self-quarantine will be a determining factor for the reopening of public and private schools in St. Kitts and Nevis, says Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Hazel Laws.
That announcement came during the June 01, 2021, edition of the NEOC COVID-19 Press Briefing.
“The results of the tests will determine the way forward in terms of reopening of schools. We have students from six schools that are being monitored, and they are all in self-quarantine as they are contacts of [previous] cases.”
Acting on the advice of the Covid-19 Task Force, the Ministry of Education took the decision to close all public and private early childhood, primary and secondary schools in the Federation effective May 25, 2021, for two weeks in the first instance.
During the physical closure of schools, teachers will be expected to work from home using available online platforms to ensure that students continue to receive necessary instructions and guidance.
