Nigeria: Guidelines for Schools and Learning Facilities Reopening after Covid-19 Pandemic Closures

The COVID-19 pandemic poses an enormous risk to the health and safety of learners, teachers, parents, school administrators, education practitioners, and the wider community. More than 1.5 billion children and young people globally have been affected by school and university closures. Subsequent development led to the indefinite closure of all schools and learning facilities in Nigeria.

The Federal Ministry of Education, (in collaboration with its departments and agencies [MDAs], development partners, the Education in Emergencies Working Group in Nigeria (EiEWGN), and the Nigeria Education Group [NEG]), have developed a Nigeria Education Sector COVID-19 Response Strategy to guide and systemize this response. The strategy sets out the framework for comprehensive and coordinated actions to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic’s immediate, medium, and long-term impact on the nation’s education sector.
