The Rajasthan government has imposed a new set of COVID-19 standards, which has closed schools in Jaipur for classes 1 to 8 until January 9 due to an increase in Omicron cases. Colleges, on the other hand, must verify that students above the age of 18 are properly vaccinated.
"From January 3 to 9, all private and government schools in the Jaipur Greater and Jaipur Heritage municipal corporations will be closed for regular classroom activities for classes 1 to 8. Collectors in other districts will make school decisions after consulting with the assistant chief secretary of the education department "The directive is as follows:- Foreign returnees will be quarantined for seven days even if they test negative, and no more than 100 persons will be allowed to attend any weddings, gatherings, or processions under the new standards.
The directive states, "A maximum of 100 persons will be allowed at wedding functions, public, political, social, or educational meetings and processions, dharnas, fairs, and similar activities." "People arriving from outside Rajasthan will be subjected to mandatory RT-PCR tests and would be placed in institutional or home quarantine for seven days until test results come back negative for the virus," the statement continued.
