“It is not enough to reopen but to keep staying opened since some schools all over the world had to shut down after reopening due to a spike in the pandemic.

“All schools must make efforts to comply with these requirements, not just for the improvement of the overall school operations but for safe reopening for academic activities to support the Lagos State Government quest for a full return,” Seriki-Ayeni said.

The DG also advised schools to have flexible teaching and learning plans to accommodate both sick teachers and students.
