TSC Asks Teachers With Serious Underlying Conditions To Work From Home

Teachers Service Commission CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia has asked teachers aged 58 years and above to stay home. Further, teachers with serious underlying conditions have been encouraged to work from home.

Dr. Macharia assured this category of teachers that their jobs are secure. This comes even as Health CS Mutahi Kagwe announced that 24 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine will be in the country by the mid of February this year

Teachers, healthcare workers, and security guards will be among the first people to be vaccinated. Health CS Kagwe, however, maintained that the vaccination of teachers won’t be compulsory.

TSC boss Nancy Macharia had negotiated with AON Minet for teachers to be covered for Covid-19 adding that teachers above 58 years should concentrate on paperwork as their colleagues work on teaching and learning in school.

“They can be utilized in offering critical duties such as preparing schemes of work, teaching aids, and marking, among others. We assure them of the safety of their jobs,” said Dr. Macharia.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) statistics reveal that about  50,000 teachers surpass the age of aged 55. “Some of these teachers already have underlying conditions and the employer must conduct a serious audit to ascertain the exact number and how they can be helped,” said KNUT SG Wilson Sossion
