RE-OPENING EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTES : Will Consider if COVID Situation Improves in Next 2 Weeks


“ I hope in the next 10 to 15 days we will deliberate on reopening of schools and colleges if COVID-19 situation improves in J&K,” the LG told reporters.


Srinagar : Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Monday said the government will deliberate on reopening schools and colleges if the COVID-19 situation improves in the coming 10 to 15 days in J&K.

The LG was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function at Polo View in Srinagar and said the Omicron-led Third Wave of COVID-19 hit J&K but was now receding gradually.

“I hope in the next 10 to 15 days we will deliberate on reopening of schools and colleges if COVID-19 situation improves in J&K,” the LG told reporters.

LG Sinha further hailed and congratulated the doctors and paramedical staff for putting in their efforts in fighting the Third Wave of COVID-19. 

“ The doctors and other staff have jointly worked hard in fighting COVID-19 situation and IN taking up the task of vaccination as well,” he said.

Notably, all the educational institutions were closed in March 2020 in view of the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. The closure of schools continued for almost one complete academic year.

Later in 2021, the government started reopening educational institutions in a phased manner. However, the institutions were again closed after J&K was hit by 2nd wave of COVID-19.

The government issued guidelines on January 9 this year wherein all the schools, colleges, polytechnics, coaching centres and ITIs were ordered to adopt an online mode of offering education till further orders.
