RESUMPTION: Some Schools at Risk on COVID-19 Protocols Compliance in Ondo

By Damilola Adeyemo

AKURE – Amid Covid-19 Spike, the federal government has ordered both nursery, primary , and secondary schools, and universities to resume today, with some laid down rules to curb the spread of the virus.

In compliance to Covid-19 guidelines laid down by the federal government for school resumption, TECHNOCRAT MEDIA has taken its time to monitor the compliance of schools to the rules in Akure, the Ondo state capital on Monday.

Among schools visited are Saint Louis Nursery and Primary school, and Oyemekun Grammar school, Akure.

Isolation Centre at St. Louis Nursery and Primary School

Our physical assessment revealed that few of the schools had complied with the rules, among which was Saint Louis Nursery and Primary Schools, which had followed the guidelines with precautions.

In a chat with the Headmistress of the school, Rev. Sister Justina, she made it known that there was the provision of water for hand washing before entering the school, hand sanitiser, social distancing in all classes, temperature checking machine at the school’s checkpoints, and an isolation centre.

She further stated that was compulsory for all pupils to put on their school-customized face shield (face mask) which is made available in the school.

Meanwhile, a visit to Oyemekun Grammar School brought up many questions if the Ondo State government cared about the pupils of the state school.

Physical assessment at the popular public secondary school showed that there were no provisions for COVID-19 guidelines: no hand sanitisers, no face masks for the pupils as well as a lack of social distancing among the pupils and teachers.

This is calling on the Ondo State government to look into the compliance of COVID-19 rules for schools to comply to as to help prevent the spreading of the virus among students as the case of Oyemekun Grammar School may be the state of some major public schools in the State.
