Action if the Kovid plague is concealed
The Abu Dhabi Department of Education has warned that it will take stern action against schools that hide from the health department authorities without reporting Kovid cases. Schools violating the law will be fined between Dh10,000 and Dh2.5 million. Authorities said parents have the right to remove their children from the school and refund their fees. Direct classes in such schools will be omitted and online classes will be conducted only. Adek Undersecretary Amir al-Hammadi said schools and nurseries in the emirate were expected to abide by the Kovid law.
Arrangements for inspection in schools
Months later, last Sunday, children were allowed direct admission to schools. The Under-Secretary said that security was a top priority and inspections would be intensified to ensure these. It has already inspected 221 schools and 119 nurseries. The examination assesses 62 codes of conduct, including mask comprehension, social distance between students, presence of Kovid task force, disinfection of classes at regular intervals, and Kovid testing at regular intervals. At the same time, extracurricular activities are not permitted within the classroom. Outside of school, Kovid can follow the code of conduct and have a little exercise and play. Kovid negative certificate is mandatory for parents to enter the school, officials said.
