The COVID 19 pandemic has changed a lot of things in our lives. Not just we were made to sit in our houses for months at a stretch, it also affected the businesses across the nation. Amid this, the educational institutes were also shut given the widespread of the deadly virus. However, after battling two waves of COVID 19, life seems to be finally coming back on track and be it the entertainment industry, the malls, theatres or offices, everything has been opening up with new guidelines.
While there have been speculations about schools and educational institutions re-opening, Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has revealed that all schools in the national capital finally reopen from November 1. However, he did emphasise that the schools will function keeping the COVID 19 protocols in the mind. It is also reported that while the school will open from Monday, the online classes will continue to function.
