New Delhi: Schools to remain shut till October 31 amid coronavirus outbreak.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that all schools in Delhi will remain shut till October 31 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Delhi government had earlier ordered schools in the national capital to close till October 5, but allowed online classes – which have become the norm in recent weeks and months with the need for social distancing – to continue.
Mr Sisodia wrote on Twitter that “All schools in Delhi will remain closed till October 31 due to Corona. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that as a parent, he understands the seriousness of the situation. At this time it will not be appropriate to take any risk regarding the health of children.”
