SCHOOLS and colleges will remain closed as many institutions of learning are being used as quarantine facilities for visitors and returning residents.
Chief coordinator for National Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Office of the President and Cabinet Agnes Mahomva told the ZBC that schools will remain closed until conditions are safe for learners.
Mahomva said the large numbers of people in quarantine areas and returning residents that are being received at the country’s ports of entry meant that many cautionary factors had to be taken into account before opening schools.
“If we open schools now the question is where would we put those numbers that continue to come back?” she said.
