TSC’ Cs Magoha’s say on the spreading Corona Virus and precautions to be taken by students and teachers

Teachers and students
have been directed to avoid
shaking hands and unnecessary body contact to prevent
and control the spread of
corona virus.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha and the Teachers
Service Commission (TSC)
have also directed that both
the students and teachers
should keep their surroundings, including offices clean
and must regularly wash
their hands.

The CS, in a circular to
school directors, said learners were expected to wash
their hands with soap,
observe hygiene in schools
and at home and most importantly avoid unnecessary
shaking of hands and body

“Given the COVID -19
outbreak and its impact on
the people and health, it is
important that all learning
institutions in the country
take appropriate measures
for prevention and response
to mitigate the Public health
Impact in the event of an
outbreak,” he said.
Magoha said in the event
the symptoms were detected, learners should be referred to a specialised health
provider promptly.

Heads of
learning institutions across
the country are asked to
liaise with the nearest public
health offices for proper information on the COVID-19
The content of the circular, addressed to directors of
education, is expected to be
passed to all heads of learning institutions.

Control measures
The TSC Director of
Administrative Services
Ibrahim Mumin said the
staff should take a deliberate
effort in the prevention and
control of the disease.
But even as the government continues to take measures to prevent the spread
of the disease, concerns
have been raised about
the Kenya Airways flight to
Rome Italy.

On Tuesday, Kenya Airways flight KQ128 left Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport and landed at the JKIA
at around 7pm. This was the
same day Italy was on a lockdown over the deadly virus.
