Maharashtra: Schools to resume offline classes in Covid-free zones




The Maharashtra government has decided to reopen schools in areas that have not detected even a single case of Covid-19 over the last month. “It has become a need of the hour to have a co-educational approach to reach out to the children of the last strata of the state. As a first step, villages which have not had Covid-19 cases for more than a month and where the gram panchayat resolves to adopt Covid-appropriate behaviour in consensus with parents/guardians will be permitted to reopen classrooms for standard 8 to 12 from 15 July,” said minister of school education department Varsha Gaikwad

 “Prior to the commencement of school, corona vaccination of all teachers and non-teaching staff in the respective schools should be done as a matter of priority. It is mandatory for all to strictly abide by the Corona prevention rules laid down by the state government before starting school. Considering the possibility of a possible third wave, any kind of negligence will not be tolerated,” Gaikwad added.
