It is expected that in the wake of the new covid 19 delta variant, people especially students will strictly adhere to the protocols but that is not situation.
A number of schools in Takoradi have ignored the protocols and are not monitoring students to wear nose mask.
It is common to see students gladly in a school bus without nose mask or a face shield and also without a hand sanitizer.
Some Students who spoke to our reporter Adesi Kumi said they don't use nose mask again and their teachers don't punish them.
It's been more than 2 weeks now we don't use any protection because our teachers themselves don't use it again the students disclosed.
They said they all have nose mask but all are in their bags because its difficult for them to breath when it covers their nose and mouth.
What they gave to us is difficult to wear even our teachers have complained so we don't use it so do our teachers they said.
Asked either they have heard of the new Delta Variant, they replied in the affirmative adding that they now wear the disposable nose mask only on their way home after school.
