The Health Ministry has issued guidelines for a partial reopening of schools, according to the Unlock 4 directives.
According to the new guidelines laid by the ministry only, schools outside the containment zones will be allowed to open. Students and teachers living in containment zones will not be allowed to attend schools.
The statement issued by the Health Ministry read, “Students of class 9th to 12th shall be permitted to visit their school on a voluntary basis for taking guidance from their teachers. This will be subject to the written consent of their parents/guardians. Such visits and teacher-student interaction must be organized in a staggered manner.”
However, wearing a mask and regular use of sanitizers is mandatory to stop the spread of the deadly virus.
