Jammu and Kashmir schools will remain closed till April 18 due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases. Earlier, 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 had 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.”

Many students are also urging the administration to shut down the schools for the time being due to the surge in Covid-19 cases in Jammu and Kashmir. If the schools are closed in the union territory, all classes and activities will be shifted to online mode.
