Back to school. What precautions should the school be taking to prevent COVID-19 virus from spreading?

School reopening should be consistent with each country’s overall COVID-19 health response to protect students, staff, teachers and their families at all times. We can do this together.

Some of the practical measures that schools can take include:
• Staggering the start and close of the school day
• Ensuring the availability of health and hygiene
   facilities as well as clean running water.
• Moving classes to temporary spaces or outdoors
• Holding school in shifts, to reduce class size
  Let us all work together to insure success. Our children deserve to be educated.
