Balasore: Amidst the rising cases of COVID-19, the Odisha government on Friday declared that all schools in the state will remain closed till December 31. However, the government added that the schools would conduct online classes as usual.

“Teaching/non-teaching staff may be called to schools for online teaching/telecounselling outside the containment zones,” the order issued by the state government read.

According to reports, Odisha School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash informed the media that earlier it was decided that school activities for students of classes 9 to 12 will be allowed to resume in November, but the government decided to extend the closure of schools amid fears of a possible second wave of COVID-19 infection.

He added that chief minister Naveen Patnaik has also cautioned about a possible second wave and this is also one of the reasons why the government decided not to put students’ health at risk.

Education Ministry is also working on a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for reopening the schools and any further decision in this regard can be taken after consultations with collectors and district education officers.
