The government has identified churches, vocational centres and national youth training centres to be used as quarantine centres for returning citizens and residents.
Returnees will no longer be accommodated at schools and universities which are being used as COVID-19 quarantine centres as a result of the imminent partial resumption of lessons.
This news development was revealed by Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa on Tuesday while speaking for the ad hoc Inter-ministerial Taskforce on COVID-19.
Mutsvangwa added that stakeholders were now working out the logistics for safe and secure conditions for children in examination classes to return to school and final year students to colleges and universities.
This entails rehabilitation and disinfection of the facilities after those in quarantine move out at the end of the quarantine period.
