The COVID situation in India continues to deteriorate with 60,000 new cases reported this week in Andhra Pradesh….it is now in the top 5 States as far as new infections. That said, Esther and the staff there continue to take a variety of precautions to ensure the safety of the staff and girls at the home:
- The nurse conducts temperature checks and O2 checks each time a teacher enters the compound and social distancing norms are employed.
- If a teacher has gone anywhere except their home, they are subject to a 5-day quarantine before they can return to the campus.
Construction work has re-started on the staff dormitory and is expected to be completed sometime in November.
