SOE RESTRICTIONS ON SCHOOLS TO BE LIFTED
The State of Emergency Controller in Papua New Guinea is considering to lift restrictions on schools in the country so they resume classes next Monday.
Police Commissioner David Manning said this in light of Covid-19 cases being tested negative with some recovering.
“All our schools will resume classes on Monday the 27th of April 2020.”
“We will review and relax other restrictions in the next couple of days and weeks,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters during a media conference at the National Operation center on Sunday.
“All restrictions will still remain in place to keep everyone safe.”
“However, we will review them and changes will be made accordingly, when the need arises.”
“We are also in the process of reopening International flights on a limited capacity mid next week.”
“This is to ensure our citizens who are stranded abroad, can return to the country.”
“Our Joint Agency Task Force is continuing to undertake COVID-19 tests in the country.”
“At the same time, Rapid Response Teams will continue to contact tracing and carry out tests for the previous cases.”
“They are also taking all preventative measures.”
“This is to ensure that all staff at our Center are safe and working in a safe environment as well.”
