No form of religious activity or visitation will be allowed in Schools as they re-open for final year students amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a directive by the Ministry of Education (MoE), visitors will not be allowed entry into Boarding Senior High Schools (SHSs) adding that Day Students will be compulsorily made boarders to prevent any infection from outside the schools.

Sector Minister, Dr. Mattew Opoku Prempeh,  announced this at the Information Ministry’s regular News Briefing today (June 2, 2020) following President Akufo-Addo’s announcement on Sunday (May 31), that final year Students in University, Senior High and Junior High Schools can return to school from June 15,  to prepare for their Exit Examinations.

According to Dr. Opoku Prempeh, the measures are aimed at reducing the rate of coronavirus infections.

Meanwhile, Foreign students studying in the country’s Tertiary Institutions, who left the Country during the heat of the pandemic will be allowed to return, granted their country will allow them back.

On the proposal by the Ghana National Association of Teachers, GNAT, that all teachers and students be tested before re-opening, the Education Minister said that should not be the focus.
