Due to the pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus, schools and colleges around the world remained shut for more than a year. But as the pandemic situation is slowly coming under control the government of various states is planning to reopen the school in phases.
However, parents are worried about sending their children to school amidst the Covid19 pandemics.
In such a scenario, both school authorities and parents should work towards multiple approaches while considering government rules and regulations and keeping the environment safe and healthy for the students.
What provisions can be followed?
The major and the most important fact to remain safe from the COVID-19 virus is to wear a mask and gloves as it will prevent the transfer of infection.
Wearing masks and gloves will prevent the students, staff, and teachers from contracting COVID-19 while they communicate with each other. Parents can make their children aware of the benefits of wearing a mask and teach them to wear it properly.
Parents can also give multivitamins such as Vitamin C, vitamin D, Zinc, Vitamin D, and other supplements recommended by the world health organization to boot immunity as students would step out from their comfort zones.
Along with this, parents should also keep a regular check on their children’s health. In case of any health problem, they should contact the doctors and follow all the quarantine guidelines, and should immediately restrict themselves to their homes.
Students should be advised to maintain proper social distancing by keeping a distance of 4-6 meters from other students. Parents and schools can work together in sorting and creating an effective timetable that will enable the students to make the most of the situation.
Lastly, address students to help them to cope up with the uncertainty and fears from time to time and re-ensure that necessary precautionary measures are being followed to make everyone feel safe.
It is safe to reopen school if all the guidelines and precautions for novel Coronavirus are strictly followed. In addition to this, the above-mentioned tips can be taken into consideration.
