Offline classes resumed in Jammu

Jammu, Feb 14: As the third wave of COVID-19 shows signs of ebbing, schools here resumed offline classes on Monday after the Jammu and Kashmir administration ordered the phased opening of educational institutions across the union territory.

Students of classes 9 to 12, dressed in uniforms and carrying vaccination certificates, were seen thronging their institutions in Jammu and other districts of the region on Monday morning, officials said.

In an order issued on Sunday, the state executive committee had said all universities, colleges, polytechnic institutes, ITIs, and classes from 9 to 12 can commence their routine offline teaching by following Covid Appropriate Behavior and standard operating procedures from February 14.

However, most of the educational institutions, including universities and colleges, remained closed and are likely to resume activities in a day or two after making necessary arrangements.

The officials said the attendance in both private and government high and higher secondary schools on Monday was low, but it was expected to pick up in the coming days.

A Jammu University official said since the order was issued on Sunday evening, they were finalizing the arrangements to reopen the university.
