Some private schools in the Tamale metropolis have resorted to online assignments to enable pupils to keep up with studies.
Some schools have formed whats App groups for parents to enable them to send homework to pupils, while others have sent text messages to parents asking them to come to school for assignments for their wards.
Some parents who spoke with Radio Ghana welcomed the development saying though it is not adequate, it is better under the circumstances.
Meanwhile working parents in the Tamale metropolis are now struggling to balance work with childcare.
Some working mothers in an interview with Radio Savannah in Tamale said, managing children at home while going to work will be a daunting task in the coming days.
Some have also revealed that they have purchased food items, medicines, water and other house supplies in preparation for a potential shut down of commercial acs.
Radio Savannah checks at the Tamale Central and Aboabo markets also showed that prices of foodstuff have gone up slightly as a result of the increased demand.
