Ogun to conduct covid-19 test for students
Ahead of the opening of secondary schools for exiting students to write final examinations, the Ogun State Government said it would conduct Covid-19 and malaria test for the students especially those in boarding house before they are admitted into hostels.
The state ministry of Health, according to a statement by the Special adviser to the Governor on Primary and Secondary Education, Ronke Soyombo, has already made provisions for the students to take the tests, as part of the conditions for the re-opening of schools in Ogun.
She said the condition of admittance to school was that returning boarding students must present a COVID-19 certificate showing negative.
“To this end, all principals are, therefore, directed to immediately disseminate the above important information to all SS3 learners in the state and to ensure that the above instructions are strictly adhered to as sanctions will be meted out to any defaulting school,” she said.
Soyombo explained that the exercise which began on July 31 and would end on August 3, was ongoing at three public health care facilities in the state.
The governor’s aide said that tests of the students were part of the frantic efforts of the state government to ensure a safe learning academic atmosphere for both learners and teachers in all public and private schools.
