Some schools in Ashanti Region have also recorded positive cases of COVID-19, but the Teacher Unions have appealed to the General public not to generalize the situation, few students recorded positive cases can not justify the call of closure of schools.
The distribution of PPES to Schools delayed for some weeks after the reopening of schools.
Some students do not wear the nose mask properly.
Especially students in the boarding house wearing nose mask throughout the day until going to bed is a challenge for some of the students, teachers are doing their best to ensure adherence to the protocols.
Sending students back home at this time will be dangerous.
Students going back home can trigger community transmission.
