…No Facemasks, Physical Distancing, Others
Following the federal government directives, schools are now reopened with full academic activities today Monday, October 12, 2020.
However, the Periscope investigation can reveal that while some private schools provide facemasks for students, hand sanitizers, soap and clean water. While students are chased out of schools for not wearing facemasks and adhering to other NCDC Protocols in some schools, considered only as isolated case, most schools across the country; both primary and secondary public and private, have not adhered to the NCDC protocols against the spread of Covid-19.
Very few, mostly private schools are however in tune with the NCDC protocols.
Most of the schools, due to the facility constraints, are overcrowded to talk about two metres spacing between the seats.
The directive in some of the states, as part of the condition for the reopening of schools, it was gathered, was that students should have hand sanitizers in their bags as much as it is the responsibility of the parents to provide for their wards, facemasks. This recommendation, even if duly communicated, is however not accommodated as most students go to schools without the hand sanitizers.
There are, also, for the most part, no provision of soaps or detergents and wash hand basins in different locations in the schools.
