At a virtual news conference held yesterday, The President of the New Democratic Party and Opposition Leader of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr Godwin Friday said: “There is discussion about reopening schools. Very important that we do so but it can only be done if it is safe to do so.
The current upsurge in COVID-19 cases here, and death of 10 people have understandably frightened people.
Thank God most people have responded by taking the necessary responded by taking the necessary measures to protect themselves and others, especially by using masks!
The Minister of Education must say how we are going to reopen safely. As I understand it, this is what teachers and parents are asking for: it is what is required!
How will lost instruction time be made up? All important issues but no leadership in Government.”
