Schools In Sindh with 100% vaccinated staff can open from Aug 30

Schools with 100% vaccinated staff can open from August 30!

The decision from the provincial government comes after the protest by the private schools association’s protest over the closing of educational institutes

Sindh Education Minister Syed Sardar Ali Shah announced on Monday that schools that had vaccinated 100 percent of their staff against Covid-19 would be allowed to open from August 30 (Monday).

Addressing a press conference in Karachi after meeting with representatives of private schools’ associations, the minister said 80% of staff at private institutions had been vaccinated so far.

The education minister said that the children would only be allowed to go back to school if their parents are vaccinated, adding that the parents would have to submit their vaccination certificates from the National Database and Registration Authority.

“A child coming from one household could be a carrier,” he said, adding that the children were also contracting Covid-19.

“Education is a huge department, and employs a large number of people,” he said, adding that it was imperative to increase the rate of vaccination so that lockdowns did not have to be imposed.

He added that the schools will reopen with 50% attendance and for six days a week.

“Random PCR testing will also be carried out at the schools,” he said.

Several households suffer when there is a positive case at a school, he added.
