Cross River To Re-Open Schools On June 16

Schools, social activities and most business have been on a stand still due to the recent pandemic as a way to slow or stop the spread. According to reports on Wednesday, Nigeria has a total of 13,873 confirmed cases, 4,351 discharged and 382 deaths so far.

The Cross River State Government has said, that a trial resumption of schools would commence on 16 June, 2020. The statement was made by the State Commissioner for Education, Godwin Amanke as he said the use of Face shields and mask is a must use, while there will be total use of hand sanitizers and frequent washing of hands.

The commission also made mention that, the students and school staff will remove the face mask while in class and use the face shield which will allow more flow of ventilation and hands will be washed on entrance to the school compound.

Meanwhile, the state governor, Ben Ayade said, “For Cross River State, we have a strong commitment that our children cannot continue to stay at home. The more they stay, the more the moral decadence, the more indiscipline, the more they become lazy. Every stage in life, there is a time where you have to be in class and once the children miss that delicate phase, it becomes very difficult.”

According to gathered information, Cross River State has a record of zero cases, so it sounds reasonable if they have chosen to take these steps. If the students and teachers can follow the stated rules and precautions, then the trail resumption might just be a success.
