PURPOSE OF THE GUIDELINES
Hygiene interventions play an important role in reducing and preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and in developing the necessary knowledge to positively impact attitudes of personal and community hygiene practices.
These guidelines provide recommendations on hygiene measures to be implemented in the school environment, in order to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
These measures include the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), social distancing and hand hygiene practices. School hygiene measures should include education and awareness of educators, learners and school support on COVID-19, the spread of the virus, symptoms thereof and personal protective measures. Importantly, these hygiene practices should continue outside of the home in households and in learner transport in order to keep the school community safe.
