SOP meaning is standard operating procedure. It’s a formal step by step instructions as how to get something done. For example, government and its health department has distributed an SOP for schools, colleges and other educational institutes as how to operate during the COVID and that is called as COVID SOP in Pakistan. In Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar and all the other big and small cities of Pakistan this SOP is being followed.
School opening SOPs and prevention from COVID-19 is very important to follow. The coronavirus, or COVID-19, is inciting panic for a number of reasons. It’s a new virus, meaning no one has immunity, and there is no vaccine. Its novelty means that scientists aren’t sure yet how it behaves they have little history to go on.
School closure disrupts the delivery of in-person instruction which has negative ramifications at the
individual and societal levels and carries an immense potential to increase the existing disparities
between different socio-economic strata of the society with far-reaching consequences.
The in-person school environment is important because it:
• provides educational instruction;
• supports the development of social and emotional skills;
• creates a safe environment for learning;
• facilitates physical activity.
Information about COVID-19 in children is still somewhat limited, but the information that is available suggests that children with confirmed COVID-19 generally have mild symptoms. However, a small percentage of children have been reported to have more severe illness. Children with COVID-19 can spread infection to others and should avoid contact with the elderly and people of any age who may be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
The best available evidence from countries that have opened schools indicate that COVID-19 poses low risks to school-aged children, at least in areas with low community transmission, and suggests that children are unlikely to be the major drivers for the spread of COVID-19. Strategies which have been adopted by different countries to minimize risk of exposure and transmission in educational institutions include:
1. Staged/Phased approach, i.e. gradually opening classes for different age groups
2. Staggering: different school arrival and break times, breaking large classes into smaller groups
3. Distancing: 6 feet between desks/seating and open-air classes where feasible and if weather allows
(mosquito bites and risk of dengue and malaria needs to be considered)
4. Use of face mask and stringent hand hygiene practices
5. Appropriate screening protocols
• To the extent possible, adhere to social distancing recommendations by adjusting school Laboratory schedules, adding additional shifts, or implementing non-overlapping teams to minimize personnel contact.
• Identify laboratory tasks and activities that can be performed with reduced or no face-to-face interactions.
• To prevent the staggering reconfigure Laboratory locations of shared equipment to reduce crowding. Create one-directional paths and workflows.
• Declutter workstations and dispose of unnecessary items to help with reconfiguration. If reconfiguration is not possible, consider placing barriers (plexiglass, partition, plastic, etc.) between
computer workstations, desks, or equipment that position students six feet apart from each other.
