Final year students in all universities and tertiary institutions will be expected to report back to class on Monday, October 5, in progressive reopening, Ministry of Education CS George Magoha has said.
Thereafter, the Boards of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training institutions (TVETs), Teacher Training Colleges (TTCs) and University Councils will announce the resumption date of in-person learning for other classes with priority to students taking science classes.
All the institutions will be expected to adhere strictly to the Ministry of Health guidelines on COVID-19.
Institutions will be required to sporadically monitor temperatures for all students, enforce observance of hygiene as well as adopt innovative ways of enforcing social distance.
All the institutions that previously served as designated quarantine facilities will be fumigated prior to their re-opening.
Further all institutions will have to be linked to a medical facility before the re-opening with MoH threatening punitive actions to institutions that will be found flouting laid out guidelines.
The fate of Primary and Secondary Schools however remains in limbo after President Uhuru Kenyatta failed to give a definite reopening date on Monday.
