Schools To Open On February 7


By Staff Reporter

HARARE – Government says schools will open on February 7 as Acting President Constantino Chiwenga eases lockdown restrictions following a decline in new Covid-19 cases, the government said on Friday.

“The general school calendar starts on 7 February 2022 following one week of finalising all reopening preparations by both school and administrators and parents,” Acting Health and Child Care minister Amos Murwira said.

Schools were supposed to open for all classes on January 10 with the opening deferred following a spike in new cases and deaths.

Murwira said the National Covid-19 epidemic curve is indicating that the 4th wave is at its tail end and this wave “appears to being brought under control”.

The business community will go back to working from office while continuing to observe Covid-19 prevention measures, he said.

Restaurant and hotels offering catering service now allowed to operate from 8am and 10pm and allow sit-in for the fully vaccinated.

Murwira said quarantine for locals, returning residents and visitors has been lifted for those fully vaccinated.
