The Cross River State Government has announced June 16 for the resumption of public schools which will be opened in phases.

The Commissioner for Education, Mr. Godwin Amanke, in an interview stated that on the said date, three public schools – one each in the three senatorial districts across the state – will reopen and after two days, other schools will be approved for resumption till the end of the month

“We are starting with public schools and subsequently, private schools will equally be made to resume,” Amanke said.

“Students will wear face masks and face shield to school. Once at the school gate the children will wash their hands and legs. Hand sanitisers will also be used. When the children enter the classroom, they will remove the face mask and use only the face shield so as to get enough ventilation.

Teachers will also be given free Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) produced by the state garment factory. All efforts are been made to curb the spread of the virus
