The Delhi government on Friday issued an advisory for schools and directed them to close their entire premises or specific wings temporarily if any student or staff tests positive for coronavirus.

The latest guidelines come after a few students and staff members of a top private school have tested positive for Covid-19, triggering concerns among parents about the safety of their wards and the possible closure of schools again.

Delhi government's guidelines for schools

If any COVID case is noticed or reported to the school authority the same must be informed to the Directorate of Education immediately.

The concerned wing of the school or the school as a whole as the case may be/must be closed down for time being after the detection of COVID cases.

Students, teachers, and other staff must wear face masks, and maintain social distancing.

Besides, the government also advised schools to apprise students, parents, and other supporting staff about regular washing of hands and the use of sanitizers.

The fresh infections in the privately run schools in the national capital have been reported close on the heels of schools in adjoining Noida and Ghaziabad reporting new cases of the disease.

However, both chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Sisodia maintained that the government is closely monitoring the situation, and asked people not to panic as there is no rise in hospitalisation.
