COVID: Students and teachers with high temperature shouldn’t be allowed into schools, says NCDC
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says teachers and students with high temperature should not be allowed into schools.
In its latest COVID-19 situation report, the agency said the detection of the Omicron variant which has been found to be more transmissible, has intensified the need to ensure the implementation and adherence to public health measures against the virus.
It said COVID-19 and its variants spread easily when people come in close contact with one another, and therefore advised schools to take adequate precautions as they resume amid the fourth wave of the pandemic.
“School administrators should ensure the following to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission within schools: Daily temperature checks at points of entry. Those with a temperature above 38oC should not be allowed entry,” the report reads.
