The Federal Government has approved what it called “safe reopening” of schools nationwide in the next phase of the gradual easing of lockdown ordered to curtail further spread of COVID-19.

However, only graduating pupils in Primary 6, Junior Secondary School 3 and Senior Secondary School 3 will resume.

Higher institutions, day care centres and other classes in primary and secondary schools, apart from final classes, will remain closed.

The government has also lifted the ban placed on interstate travels with effect from July 1, provided such journeys are made outside curfew hours.

The Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Boss Mustapha, disclosed these at the daily briefing of the task force in Abuja on Monday.
