“Schools will remain open — critical for students’ mental health & learning” – Stephen Lecce




New protocols will also be introduced at schools to ensure student and staff safety following the April Break, Lecce said in a statement Thursday.

“Schools will remain open — critical for students’ mental health & learning,” he tweeted.

“The Chief Medical Officer of Health has said schools remain safe. Against third wave & VOCs, strong protocols have kept 98.7 per cent of schools open and 74 per cent without any cases. Students deserve to be in class.”
