“The second category is for schools that have had a case. I think in the last two weeks, there have been no case. I advise that they can also vacate and go home”,
“The assessment will be done to identify those who are contacts and if any of them is in that class, their vacation will be delayed while we do an assessment and observation after which they will be asked to go home.”
