Schools are making preparations to welcome back students aged five to 11 after a nine-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some schools have distributed memos reminding parents and guardians of standard operating procedures (SOPs) such as antigen rapid test (ART) screenings. The parents were told to conduct ART screenings three times a week on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays and to forward the results to class teachers via WhatsApp or filling an e-form. They were also told to pick up the children on time to minimise gathering among the students after school. More details in Saturday’s Borneo Bulletin.
