Angolan President authorizes classes resumption at pre-school education

  • Angolan Head of State, João Lourenço
Luanda - The President of the Republic, João Lourenço, authorized, this Friday, the resumption of classroom learning activities in pre-school education, in all education and teaching institutions in the country, from 5 April.

 

In a decree made public, João Lourenço adds that this is due to the reevaluation of the measures to prevent and control the spread of the virus that causes Covid-19, taking into account the evolution of the country's epidemiological situation.

 

“The measure covers public and private educational establishments in the National Education System, teaching institutions in Foreign States and International Schools operating in Angola,” reads the document to which ANGOP had access.

 

The opening of dining halls for the exclusive use of pre-school education is also authorized from the same date.

 

In the same decree, the Head of State determines exemption from quarantine on official short-term trips not exceeding 72 hours.

 

João Lourenço advises the Ministry of Health (MINSA) to define a special quarantine regime or determine its exemption in cases of state travel or for professional and business reasons, whenever the nature of the activity justifies it for reasons of urgency or interest relevant audience.

 

Pre-school classes have been under suspension since March 2020, after the first positive cases at Covid-19 were recorded in Angola.
