Dr Christopher Tufton

Dr Christopher Tufton, Minister of Health said a decision will be made on the planned reopening of schools next month.

Responding to questions at a virtual press conference Monday afternoon, he said the likelihood of a delay in the reopening is a real possibility as the country is dealing with an increase of coronavirus infections.

With schools set to be reopened on September 7, Dr Tufton said there are concerns about the trends in new cases noting that there may be challenges if the situation is not abated.
