Meeting to review Covid measures in schools

Test-to-stay tests being carried out in a school

Coronavirus measures in schools will be evaluated during a meeting on Monday afternoon with the ministers of health and education.

Educational organisations, parents’ confederations and other stakeholders are due to attend. Kindergarten and special needs schools will also be represented.

The test-to-stay strategy is to be given particular attention.

President of high school teachers union Oelmek, Costas Hadjisavvas, said they support keeping schools operational, however, safety and health must remain paramount.

President of primary school teachers union Poed, Myria Vassiliou, told the Cyprus News Agency that schools need substantial support as the requirements of the measures, the testing, and the constant stream of ministry circulars and announcements, strain the normal daily functioning of schools, many of which are now understaffed.
