Will take call on reopening primary schools soon: BC Nagesh

Karnataka Education Minister B C Nagesh on Saturday said the state government will take a decision on the opening of schools for classes 1 to 5 after consultations with the technical experts committee formulated on Covid-19. The decision comes after seeing a decline in the number of Covid-19 cases in the state

“We are holding a meeting with experts committee soon. The matter will be deliberated upon and a decision will be taken after their consent,” the minister said.

The Karnataka government resumed schools and colleges for classes 9 to 12  on August 23. After successfully conducting classes across the state, a decision has been taken to reopen schools for students of classes 6 to 9.

All districts in Karnataka have recorded less than 2 per cent Covid positivity rate. The weekend curfews have been lifted from this week in the districts bordering Kerala and Maharashtra after taking stringent measures to prevent Covid-19 infections. The state government has restricted the movement of students, employees, among others, coming from Kerala to the state till October 31.

Experts say that the threat of spreading Covid-19 infections looms large as the BJP government in the state has lowered its guard by allowing Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. The experts’ committee could ask the state government to take a decision after observing the situation after the Ganeshotsav celebrations.
