From May 20, the Uttar Pradesh government has released an interim order all schools and colleges in the state to begin offering online classes to students.
The Uttar Pradesh government has issued an order directing all educational institutions to begin online classes on May 20 to ensure that students in the state do not miss out on their scheduled classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students in primary schools, however, will not be able to take online classes again.
In response to an increase in COVID-19 infections, the state government released an order on May 10 suspending online classes for all educational institutions.
Dinesh Sharma, Uttar Pradesh’s Deputy Chief Minister, said that academic work in schools was previously halted from April to May 20, which will be considered summer vacation, and that online classes will begin in schools on May 20.
Meanwhile, in view of rising COVID-19 infections in the state, the Uttar Pradesh government decided on Saturday (May 15, 2021) to extend the state’s partial corona curfew until May 24.
The decision came a day after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath conducted a virtual meeting with top state officials to discuss the COVID-19 situation.
