Star of the Sea High School is also another school that was shut down last week on Wednesday, October 21, after four cases of COVID-19 were confirmed at the institution.
Resurgence of covid-19 cases in the country has informed the government to shelve plans to reopen schools fully. Education cabinet secretary professor George Magoha, revealed that the rest of the learners will continue staying home till the government advices otherwise.
Speaking while inspecting the distribution of government-funded desks at Dr Muthiora Primary School in Dagoretti, Nairobi, Magoha said that the government had decided not to proceed with full reopening.
“Those classes that were not opened before, should remain closed until the government advises otherwise. I hope that the government has made itself very clear on this one. If you do not abide, there shall be consequences,” stated Magoha.
