COVID-19 testing of students before resumption not compulsory, says PTF

Nigeria’s Presidential Taskforce (PTF) on COVID-19 said testing of students before resumption is not compulsory while the country continues to battle the global pandemic.

“The PTF does not recommend testing of students before they resume school,” PTF national coordinator, Dr Sani Aliyu said on Wednesday while briefing journalists.

Aliyu, however, said there should be strict compliance with COVID-19 protocols and a behavioural change to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Minister for state education Emeka Nwajiuba in May had issued guidelines for all schools in the country in preparatory for their reopening.

Nwajiuba said all schools must ensure compliance to social distancing, provision and use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers and the compulsory use of face masks to curb the spread of coronavirus.
