The Gombe state government approved the reopening of schools across the state, after a six-month break due to COVID-19.

Dr Habu Dahiru, Commissioner of Education, revealed this at a press conference in Gombe on Thursday.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) recalls that state schools were closed in March to reduce the spread of COVID-19 infection in the state.

He said boarding schools across the state would resume on October 4, while day schools, including Islamic primary schools, Islamiya and Tsangaya, would start classes on October 5.

The commissioner urged school administrators to continue to observe all COVID-19 protocols by wearing face masks and observing social distancing, as well as measuring body temperature with infrared thermometers.

He also emphasized the need for all schools to establish a school health committee to ensure the implementation of health protocols.

The commissioner stated that the ministry would involve all private school owners and all stakeholders to ensure they enter the state government’s safe restart program.
