School employees urged to avoid travel during upcoming mid-year vacation

The Shared Services Department at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education has issued a circular calling upon school personnel to avoid travel during the upcoming mid-year vacation, according to a report in local Arabic daily Arrayah.

Addressed to schools, the circular has been issued based on the precautionary and preventive measures taken by the State to limit the spread of Covid-19, the ministry’s concern for the health and safety of children, students and employees, and in the light of another wave of the virus being seen in many places worldwide.

Employees have been advised not to travel in the said period so that they do not expose themselves to accountability as a result of not commencing work on the specified date.
