Muscat: The Ministry of Education has issued a circular detailing preventive measures for schools in Oman to reduce the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The ministry called for suspending all events and educational activities at the governorate or school level until further notice.
Schools shall conduct campaigns that include a segment in the morning assembly for tips on preventive measures to be followed to reduce the spread of infectious diseases.
They shall put notices and posters in suitable places that are easy to read and follow by students, apart from social media and text messages to spread the culture of awareness and health education in the school as well as the local community.
Schools shall find a suitable mechanism for the operations of the cafeteria that is appropriate for the density of students in the school, which will avoid crowding of students at a same place.
School bus drivers shall open windows during transportation and clean buses regularly with sanitary sterilizers and disinfectants.
