The Federal Government has said that the Federal Government is still making plans to reopen schools across the country.

The Minister for Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, while addressing newsmen in Abuja during the weekend said there is no fixed date for reopening school yet.

Recall that schools, religious and public gatherings were banned in March as a measure to curtail the spread of coronavirus pandemic in the country.

The Minister said government would continue to monitor and study the situations with a view to deciding when to reopen schools.

According to Ehanire: “There is no fixed date on schools’ resumption. The presidential task force on COVID-19 is studying the situation, carrying out reviews every two and four weeks to assess the situation and judge when it is safe.

“The Federal Government is taking very seriously the balance between safety and preventing of disease explosion, and the opening of schools.

“We are encouraging schools to embrace online training and education as much as possible.

“As soon as the details are established and the risk of transmission is measured and established, then, schools will reopen.”
