Schools in Uttar Pradesh to open from February 7
Lucknow: With a decline in Covid cases in the state, the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has decided to reopen schools from Monday.
For now, offline classes will resume for standard 9-12 and the state government has also ordered to reopen degree colleges.
“Educational institutions for classes 9 and above, along with all degree colleges, will be restarted from February 7,” said Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Avanish K Awasthi.
