Minister Gunawardena pointed out to the House that steps were taken to resume schools in stages after the country was reopened on October 1, 2021. He said that schools were reopened after all the 240,000 teachers were vaccinated with both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“With this budget, we have invested heavily in our children. If said otherwise, then any such Member of Parliament should be considered to have insulted his or her own children. We should all be happy to be able to open all schools properly.” Minister Gunawardena noted.
