Chhattisgarh schools will reopen for Classes 10 and 12 standards as COVID cases are declining. The schools will reopen with 50 per cent capacity from August 2. The students need to attend classes on alternate days.
The decision was taken by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel during a cabinet meeting on Tuesday. The regular schools and colleges are closed down after the Covid 19 pandemic created a catastrophic situation in the country. The online classes will continue in the same way it has been happening for the last one and a half years. Schools in urban areas need to also talk to parents before making any decisions.
“In light of the current Covid-19 situation, physical classes for students of universities and colleges for the academic session 2021-22 will be started from August 2 with 50 per cent daily attendance,” the official statement said.
To reopen schools in remote areas, the village panchayats need to consult the parents. Hostels and residential schools in the tribal-dominated Bastar division will also reopen soon.
Anganwadi centres will also reopen in two shifts from July 26.
According to the latest data available, the state has reported 10,00,169 COVID-19 cases. The number of active cases is 3,469 and a total of 9,83,200 has been recovered.
