The Congress of South African Students (COSAS) has engaged with the Basic Education Department and other stakeholders for all schools to be shut down.

To date, Grades R, 6,7,11 and 12 have returned to school. However certain schools have not followed the recommended regulations. Therefore COSAS insists on the shut down of schools.

Zithulele Ndlela, COSAS National spokesperson, says that they have a list of schools that were not properly implementing safety measures.

They have reported that some thermometers were not working, certain schools did not have screening done and some schools had a water and sanitation problem, all within the first week or schools reopening.

This is all an issue since it puts children at risk for contracting or even becoming carriers of the virus.
