With all  government schools set to reopen from June 29 onward  in four stages, schools have been  instructed to ensure that hand-washing facilities are made available for children at the entrance to schools as part of the COVID-19 preventive measures.

At Royal College, Colombo, old boys of the school have assisted  in installing such facilities for the students.

Schools have been instructed to disinfect and  clean classrooms ahead of the opening after nearly four months of closure.
