THE Uukule Senior Secondary School at Onyaanya in the Oshikoto Region has registered four positive cases of the coronavirus among its learners.
According to an urgent message to parents from acting principal Emilia Emma Angula, the four learners are all in isolation and are in stable condition.
She implored parents to remain calm.
“The rest of the learners are doing well so far thus there is no need for you as parents to panic,” she said, adding that the situation is under control and that medical personnel is rendering the needed assistance.
She further said that, in an attempt to contain the virus, no parent will be allowed “to sign out” any learner.
“Learners will remain in the hostel till further notice,” said Angula.
Schools countrywide are facing the challenge of the COVID-19 among learners as well as among the teaching staff.
