56 schools have been earmarked for sanitisation by the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation.
This is taking place ahead of the physical reopening of schools on February 8.
Kwesi Antoine, chair of the Public Health Sanitisation and the Environment Committee, said the project began on January 20.
He said this is not the first such effort undertaken by the corporation, since at the beginning of the pandemic, the corporation ensured homes for the elderly were sanitised as well.
The corporation also distributed 500 electronic tablets to students in the area, over 1,000 hampers to families affected by covid19 restrictions, and supplied water tanks to residents during the pandemic.
