Jammu & Kashmir Government has decided to close all schools upto class 9 for two weeks and classes from 10th to 12th for two weeks due to rising Covid cases, said the Jammu and Kashmir L-G Manoj Sinha on Sunday, April 4. The administration of Jammu and Kashmir has asked all the district magistrates to take a call on the suspension of physical classes and the closure of schools in their areas, considering the safety of the students amid the sudden spike of Covid-19 cases across the union territory.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration issued the direction after dozens of students and teachers tested positive for coronavirus in different districts, mostly in Anantnag, Kulgam, and Budgam over the past couple of days.

An official order released by the government states, “All district magistrates / District Disaster Management Authorities’ chairmen in Jammu K shall take a call on the continuation of academic activities i.e. physical classes or online classes in their respective jurisdictions, keeping in view the safety of students and present trend of Covid-19 pandemic in different districts.”
