The demand by some states to students resuming schools today to present their COVID-19 test results has been abolished by the Presidential Task Force
The PTF chairman Boss Mustapha said it is required of school authorities to monitor resuming students rather than requesting test results from them.
Reports from parents in Ogun State expressed their displeasure with the state government over the alleged #25,000 test fee for each student.
National coordinator of PTF, Sani Aliyu disclosed on Monday, August 3rd at a briefing in Abuja, that a negative COVID_19 test result is only valid for the moment it was conducted.
Sani Aliyu advised school stakeholders to look out for possible symptoms among students and get them medical attention immediately if symptoms are discovered.
He issued a clear warning that any student who has cough or any other respiratory symptoms should stay back at home and seek medical care.
