Attention Students! Schools in Sindh will reopen from August 23.
Sindh Education Minister Syed Sardar Ali Shah announced the decision on Tuesday after holding a meeting of the steering committee.
“The decision has been taken to open schools from Monday to continue the education journey of children,” he announced.
The provincial minister added that the schools would be opened with 50 percent attendance and subject to strict compliance with Covid-19 standard operating procedures.
“Additionally, only schools that could assure 100pc vaccination of their teachers by Monday would be allowed to open. Parents will also have to submit their vaccination certificates at schools,” Shah said.
“Sudden [and] random PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests will be conducted as well,” the education minister said, adding that the effects of 9th and 10th Muharram on the Covid-19 situation would be reviewed on Friday (Aug 20).
Shah said that all government employees had also received Covid-19 jabs owing to fear of their salaries being stopped.
