Jharkhand schools, colleges reopen for all classes in 17 districts

In Jharkhand, schools, colleges and universities will be allowed to reopen from February 1, 2022 as the Covid-19 situation improves. Schools will reopen for all classes in 17 districts. In the other seven districts – Ranchi, East Singhbhum, Chatra, Deoghar, Saraikela, Simdega and Bokaro – which have reported higher numbers of COVID cases, schools will reopen for grades 9 to 12, they said.

The decisions were made on January 31 at a meeting of the state disaster management authority chaired by Prime Minister Hemant Soren.

Higher education institutions such as colleges, universities and ITIs were also allowed to reopen, according to an official statement. Permission has also been given for offline comparative research, according to the statement.

On January 3, the government of Jharkhand had lifted the Covid-19-related restrictions. The government decided to close all educational institutions and tourist places and limit the presence in offices to 50 percent.

The government also allowed gyms and swimming pools to reopen, while allowing sporting events in stadiums without spectators. The government relaxed the limit for gatherings, allowing up to 200 people to attend. “All parks and tourist places will remain closed. No more than 50 percent of capacity will be present in restaurants, bars, cinemas, shops and malls at any one time,” the report said.

Jharkhand witnessed a drop in Covid-19 cases on Monday as 733 people tested positive, 305 less than the previous day. The toll remained at 5,300, as there have been no new fatalities in the past 24 hours.
