Delhi Schools will remain closed for physical attendance till further notice, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) announced in a review meeting today.
In a COVID review meeting today i.e. January 27, 2022, DDMA decided to relax some of the COVID-19 restrictions imposed earlier in the national capital. However, no fresh decision was taken regarding the reopening of schools in the city.
As per the latest guidelines, all schools and colleges will remain closed for physical attendance till further notice and online classes will continue as per the pre-existing rules.
The announcement comes less than 24 hours after Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said it was becoming necessary to reopen schools and prevent further damage to the social and emotional well-being of children.
At this time there are also pathologists with the immunology of microbes in different pathologies, as in the examination and audit so far.
Sisodia had examples of schools around the world and other cities in India now being reopened. He had assured that the Delhi government would recommend reopening of schools in the DDMA review meeting. “While the Covid cases and positivity rates are declining in Delhi, it would not be appropriate to keep children away from schools. The return of children to schools will not only cause a stir in schools, but it will also signal a return to life on track,” he had said.
