Prioritise safety, parents urge

“IF restaurants and public places such as markets insist that patrons show their digital certificates, and adhere to an incubation period of at least two weeks after their second dose, then schools should do the same.

Teachers who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons should be made to do a swab test weekly at their expense, including wearing a face shield, double mask and practise physical distancing.”

Parent Action Group for Education Malaysia (PAGE) chairman Datin Noor Azimah

Abdul Rahim“MASKS with face shields are a must, and only vaccinated visitors should be allowed on school grounds. Teachers should limit the number of students who can enter rooms like the library and computer labs at any one time, and avoid using the air conditioning.

The onus is on teachers to protect themselves and their loved ones to avoid the risk of infecting themselves and others within the school. Additionally, schools should only be reopened once it is deemed safe by the authorities.

Based on the feedback we get, most parents have no qualms about sending their children back to schools once they are vaccinated.

Apart from the basic SOP, the best and most pertinent thing we can all do for now is to get vaccinated.”
