Gradual reopening of educational institutions on cards

Classes for grades 9–12 in all schools, their coaching classes, and all colleges/universities will be allowed to resume on September 1.

Students will not be obliged to attend offline lessons, according to Sisodia, and consent from parents would be required for students to attend school.

‘COVID-19 SOPs to be strictly followed’

He also stated that the decision to reopen schools for lower grades would be made after an analysis of the impact of reopening schools for senior grades.

PTI reported that Lt Governor Anil Baijal, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Sisodia attended a meeting of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) to talk about the issue of reopening schools in Delhi.

Due to a statewide lockdown, Delhi schools have been closed since March 2020. In August, the Delhi government announced the formation of an expert committee to decide whether or not to reopen schools due to a drop in COVID-19 cases.

‘After complete vaccination of adults, schools should reopen’

Mr Arora was quoted by ANI as having observed that primary, secondary, and higher education institutions should all be reopened. As per him, primary schools have children under the age of 10, and they are the least affected with the virus.

However, by vaccinating all adults in their environment, a safe environment may be created, Arora noted.
