Schools to remain closed in these STATES due to rise in number of corona cases - see all details here
The COVID-19 pandemic hit the country almost a year ago. The schools and other educational institutions all over the country were closed since March last year and the students had to shift to the online mode of education. As the COVID-19 situation of the country seemed to be in control, the state governments in various states decided to reopen the schools. However, the recent surge in the number of COVID-19 cases in the country, has compelled many state governments to close the schools once again.
Here is a list of the states that have closed their schools and other educational institutions due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases across their states:
Chhattisgarh Minister Ravindra Choubey on March 21, 2021 informed that schools, colleges and Anganwadis will be closed in Chhattisgarh due to the massive rise in the number of COVID-19 cases. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel also tweeted, "It has been decided by the state government that in view of spike in COVID-19 cases, all schools will remain closed till further notice. Except for class 10 and 12 board exams, exams of all other classes will not take place and all students will be given general promotions." Source: PTI
