MUT calls for discussions on protocols for closure of schools

The Teachers’ Union, MUT, is calling on the Government to start discussions regarding protocols for the closure of schools.

The MUT stated it is making this call in light of the high number of cases being confirmed daily and the high transmision rate of the virus within the community, which it said is affecting schools, educators, students and families.

The union added that at some point, some schools will have to close, but the criteria for such a step are as yet not known. The union reiterated that this remains the Government’s responsibility as the decision to open the schools had been taken by the Government.
