With just three weeks to go before some matrics will sit for the first final exam papers, preparations are underway to make more space available to ensure venues abide by COVID-19 regulations. The Department of Basic Education says this year due to the unprecedented virus outbreak, public schools would also be using facilities like community halls and church buildings to create more space for a large number of learners sitting to write some exams while abiding by social distancing protocols. The department says learners showing COVID-19 symptoms like a persistent fever would not be allowed to write the final paper this year.
