Schools, Universities & Colleges To Close On 24 March

The government has issued the following press statement which communicates that schools and tertiary education institutions must close by 24 March in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

NEW DATES FOR CLOSING OF SCHOOLS AND TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS

Following concerns from parents, as well, representations by the educational sector, Government has decided that all schools and tertiary institutions (colleges, polytechnics and universities) will now close on Tuesday, 24′ March, 2020, as a precaution against the outbreak and spread of Coronav”.•

While Zimbabwe has not recorded any cases of the virus to date, Government has  thought it prudent to err on the side of caution, more so in respect of teaching institutions where human concentration and contact is expectedly high. The decision is part of the general precautionary measures the country is taking in light of the worldwide outbreak and rapid spread of the Coronavirus.

As I announced on Tuesday, 17 March, 2020, Government will advise on dates for the reopening of all teaching institutions in the country once the threat of the virus is adjudged to have receded.
The date of 24′ March should allow for an orderly closure of our institutions, and for parents to arrange for the safe travel of pupils and students.
