Ministry of Education Statement - Moruca

The Ministry of Education (MoE) regrets that six teachers of Santa Rosa Primary School, Moruca, Region One have tested positive for the Coronavirus and have all been placed in institutional isolation. These teachers volunteered on May 25th, 2020 to distribute hampers to parents in the community.

It is important to note that schools in Region One (Barima-Waini) to which Moruca is apart, were never opened on June 8th, 2020; and the affected teachers never came into contact with neither children nor teachers from that school or any other school. Schools in Region One have been closed since March 16th 2020.

Notwithstanding that, the Department of Education, Moruca sub-district out of an abundance of caution asked the remaining twenty-six (26) teachers of the school in question to self-quarantine. The Department of Education will continue to work with Regional Health Officials and the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) to ensure the teachers' well-being are adequately addressed.

A further update will be provided.
