New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has announced that schools and educational institutions may resume physical classes in phases from September 1. In this regard, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) on Monday issued guidelines for reopening schools in the national capital.

According to the recent DDMA guidelines, a maximum of 50 per cent students in each class can be called on the basis of ability and the schedule should be prepared according to the capacity of the class. The DDMA said that educational institutions should abide by the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) rules prescribed by the government.

DDMA has instructed schools not to allow students and teachers living in the Covid Containment Zone to enter educational institutions. All government schools and all private schools will also be open for classes 9 to 12 from September 1, classes may resume. Coaching centers can start classes for students in grades 9 through 12. However, no decision has yet been made on the resumption of junior classes.

It has remained below 1% for more than 90 days. Delhi has added an average of 32 cases per day in the last seven days.
