The West Bengal government has declared summer vacation for schools from April 20 amid spike in Covid-19 cases. The decision has been taken keeping in mind the safety and health of students, state Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said on Monday, news agency PTI reported. 

"Classes for 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th standard had resumed from mid-February (in state-aided and state-run schools). But, due to the present COVID-19 situation, we are forced to prepone the summer vacation. The education department will issue necessary notifications today," he said.

Chatterjee said he would also urge private schools to follow suit. The decision comes amid reports of many teachers in schools testing positive in the past two months.
