Karnataka Health Minister Dr. K Sudhakar, on Friday, announced that the medical and paramedical colleges in the state that are affiliated to the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences would resume regular classes from December 1.

All educational institutes and colleges in Karnataka have been shut since March because of the nationwide lockdown imposed to control the spread of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Now, the phased reopening of colleges is commencing across the country.

The health minister tweeted, “The Karnataka government has decided to re-open all the medical, dental, AYUSH, paramedical, nursing and pharmacy colleges affiliated to RGUHS from December 1. I request the administration of colleges and students to strictly adhere to the guidelines issued by the government.”

Apart from the reopening of medical and paramedical colleges in the state of Karnataka, the degree colleges are also set to reopen from November 17, with several Covid-19 safety guidelines set into place.

As of now, no final date has been issued for the reopening of schools in Karnataka. Karnataka Education Minister S Suresh Kumar said that Karnataka schools will only reopen after discussion with experts.

The education minister said that a meeting will be planned regarding the reopening of schools in Karnataka with health officials, respective departments, and other experts and the final decision will only be taken after that.
