The Bihar government has decided to reopen Anganwadis and primary schools from November 15. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday announced the reopening of educational institutions after a prolonged shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar tweeted and wrote, "Corona epidemic restrictions have yielded positive results. After reviewing the situation today, it has been decided to open all Anganwadi centers and schools for small children by November 15, 2021.
Nitish Kumar said that the district administration will issue orders for procession and crowd management during the upcoming festivals. Compulsory Kovid test will be done for passengers coming from states with more cases of corona infection. He said that all eligible persons would be vaccinated. Rest of the earlier decisions will continue. Still, covid friendly behavior and precautions are necessary.
According to the official statement, the decision to reopen the school has been taken after analyzing the situation of Kovid in the state. As the number of Kovid cases is decreasing, so the Bihar government has decided to reopen the schools. Schools reopened for students of classes 1 to 8 in Bihar from August 16. According to the order of the state government, schools from class 9 to 12 were also reopened with 50 percent attendance of students.
Schools are also opening in Maharashtra
Schools are going to start in Maharashtra from October 4. Schools will start across the state following the Corona rules. The Chief Minister has given his approval on this decision. The State Education Department had sent a proposal to open the schools closed in the state due to Corona. The Chief Minister has accepted this proposal. But at the same time, the District Magistrates will have the right to take decisions in view of the circumstances related to Corona. That is, in the districts where the conditions related to Corona are not favorable, then the District Magistrate can decide to keep the school closed.
