Students in Nauru encouraged to be vaccinated before returning to school

The Department of Education said, “Once they receive their vaccine, they can then re-commence school.”

“Education and the task force advises parents & guardians including school staff to keep in mind COVID measures and continue to practice health measures to avoid getting Covid.”

Throughout the term, Education and taskforce will work closely to manage and contain Covid and to keep everyone safe.

The Department of Education has also welcomed back all staff and students and is urging parents and guardians to ensure their their children attend school every day.

Classes resume for Years 11 and 12 students in Nauru

The Department of Education said all other classes remain on hold due to the rising in numbers of the Covid-19 cases in the country.

“The Department of Education is working closely with the Taskforce to ensure that all safety measures are undertaken by students and teachers in regards to physical distancing, sanitising hands and wearing masks.”

Schools were closed last month as part of measures to contain a community outbreak of Covid-19.

Officials continue to ease Covid-19 restrictions as of 22 July.
