Kenya to reopen schools as virus cases drop

Kenya to reopen schools as virus cases drop. Kenya’s education ministry said Tuesday that select classes would resume this week, after previously declaring the school year lost, following a drop in coronavirus cases.

Kenya had shut schools in March as one of the measures to control the spread of Covid-19. The progressive reopening of schools will begin with three grades. Pupils will be required to wear masks.

Kenya shut schools in March along with a slew of other measures to contain the pandemic, including a night curfew, the closure of restaurants and bars, and the cordoning off of main cities.

These measures have been progressively relaxed as cases fall. President Uhuru Kenyatta last week allowed bars to reopen and restaurants to sell alcohol again, while moving the start of an evening curfew from 21:00 to 23:00.

Education Minister George Magoha said the “progressive re-opening of schools” will begin with three classes: pupils in Grade 4 – about halfway through primary school – those in their final year of primary school and those finishing high school.

Key final primary school and high school exams will take place between mid-March and mid-April 2021.

“Although physical distancing will remain a challenge, it should not be used as a bottleneck to keep any child away from school,” Magoha said in a statement. All pupils will be required to wear masks, while schools will have to monitor the temperature of students and staff.

“Where there is no running water, schools will use sanitisers,” the statement said. For several weeks, the health ministry has been recording between about 50 and 250 new infections every day, a slump from highs approaching 900 in just late July.
