Cross River set to train school heads ahead of resumption
The government of Cross River has said that it is set to train school heads ahead of resumption.
It said that it will train head teachers and principals ahead of full resumption of schools in the state.
This was stated at a media briefing by the state Commissioner for Health and Chairman of the COVID-19 Response Task Force, Dr Betta Edu.
A trial resumption was carried out in three schools on June 16. Edu said,
“We will commence training for head teachers and principals of schools to prepare them for schools resumption, which might happen anytime soon.”
She also disclosed that government had commenced massive screening at border communities and areas of interest.
She said that one of the challenges Cross River state was facing was the failure of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control to respond to “our request for testing site at Lawrence Henshaw Memorial Hospital and the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital despite the provision by the Cross River State Government of a PCR machine and Gene-Xpert machines in two facilities in Calabar.”
