The state government also decided to open student residences. Bus traffic resumes at the same time.
The minister highlighted that all preparations have been made as standard operational instructions of the Center to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Tamil Nadu to resume schools
The Tamil Nadu government announced Tuesday that 10th and 12th grade schools will reopen on January 19.
A statement by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami said that each class would have only 25 students to maintain social distancing standards and the state health department will provide vitamin and zinc tablets to boost your immunity.
The decision was made based on parents’ comments at school meetings. Most parents support the idea of reopening schools before the end of the school year in March.
The government previously planned to reopen schools on November 16, but this was postponed when parents resisted out of fear of a second wave of Covid-19.
Palaniswami’s statement noted that the number of Covid-19 cases in the state has steadily declined in recent weeks.
