The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has given teachers an indefinite leave following the closure of all learning institutions countrywide. On Monday, the Education Cs directed all learners to stay at home after more cases of Corona Virus were reported in the Country. On Sunday, the president directed that all schools, colleges and universities be closed to prevent further spread of the pandemic.

“You are directed to remain at home during this period of corona virus epidemic,” reads a Circular from one of the TSC’s field officers.
