As academic institutions resume across the country, the Federal Government has said that COVID-19 test is not a prerequisite for entry into schools.

In a statement signed by the Director of Information and Public Affairs to the Ministry of Education, Mr. Ben Goong, on Monday, the FG noted that only temperature checks should be carried out on students and any other person crossing any school gate.

It, however, warned school authorities to desist from asking students or parents to undergo Covid-19 test.

The statement reads: “No COVID-19 test required for resumption of students. The Federal Ministry of Education says no Covid-19 test is required for returning students to be admitted into their schools.

“Only temperature checks should be carried out on students and any other person crossing any school gate. School authorities should therefore refrain from asking students or parents to undergo Covid-19 test before they are accepted in their schools.”
