Schools to re-open tomorrow

All schools excluding in Western Province and isolated areas will reopen for Grades 6 to 13 from tomorrow.

Deputy Director General (Public Health), Dr. Hemantha Herath said that all schools from tomorrow should always follow the health guidelines to reduce the risk of Covid-19.

Dr. Herath said that the basic health guidelines are maintaining at least one and a half metres distance between each person always, wearing a face mask covering the nose and mouth, washing hands with soap and water often or using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

Schoolchildren should be trained to follow respiratory etiquette (cough/sneeze into your elbow) and hand washing from early childhood, which are good health habits that need to be followed throughout their lives, he added.
