“Let’s us protect ourselves our colleagues or students as we strive to return to face-to-face instruction.”

Carbon added, our schools and learning institutions should be seen as a safe place for all.

She encouraged teachers to adhere strictly to the covid-19 protocols and guidelines issued by the ministry of health.

Teachers let us do this for Dominica.
