COVID-19

Classes starts on 11th of May 2020 and we wish you a happy resumption as you resume online. In accordance with the Nigerian government decision, the school will remain closed until further notice. Please be assured that you will be informed if the situation changes.

The main symptoms of COVID - 19 are as follows:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Breathing difficulties

Symptoms may be mild (similar to a cold) or more severe (such as those associated with pneumonia and lung or kidney failure).
Usually, coronaviruses infect the nose, throat and lungs. They are most often spread by:

  • Close contact with an infected person when that person coughs or sneezes;
  • Contact of the hands with infected surfaces and then with the mouth, nose or eyes.

There is no specific treatment or vaccine for COVID 19 but supportive treatments may be available.
These recognized hygiene measures are recommended for everyone:

  • Wash your hands often with warm running water and soap for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Observe good hygiene when coughing or sneezing:
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your arm to reduce the spread of germs.
  • If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands afterwards.

The school is taking these preventive measures to avoid contamination:

  • Cancellation of trips for the month of March. This measure may change depending on the epidemiological situation.
