The Federal Government has announced that the disinfection of schools against the spread of COVID-19 in preparation for the resumption of class activities has begun today Tuesday July 7, 2020.
This was disclosed by the Minister of Environment, Muhammad Mahmood, in Abuja at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
According to the Minister, the decontamination and disinfection exercise was intentionally delayed to ensure that the chemicals were effective enough when the schools resume. The process is expected to last through Tuesday and the rest of the week.
He encouraged Parents to release their children and assured them that the schools would be safe for learning activities.
