As the daily COVID-19 cases have declined in Karnataka, the state government has decided to reopen schools for Classes 6 to 8 from 6 September. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai made this announcement following a meeting with an expert panel and government officials after analysing the coronavirus situation across the state.

Following the discussion, Minister R Ashoka informed that the government has decided to reopen schools in areas with less than 2 percent of positive rates.

As other states are opening schools for Classes 9 to 12, Karnataka decided to do the same for younger classes as well. Meanwhile, for Classes 9 to 12, the schools reopened last week keeping all COVID-19 protocols in mind.

According to a News18 report, a 13-member advisory committee was set up to analyse the coronavirus situation and reopening of schools. As per the government order, the panel then suggested phase-wise reopening of schools.

Below are few guidelines on reopening schools:

  • Classes in Karnataka will be held in batches; the first batch will contain 50 percent of students while the remaining 50 percent will be allowed the following day
  • Classes will reopen for 5 days a week in taluks with a positivity rate below 2 percent following all guidelines directed by the state authorities
  • Wearing face masks and maintaining social distance will be mandatory in schools. However, attending school will not be compulsory for students
  • If need be, parents can request for their child to study online or in physical mode. As both online and offline classes will go simultaneously
  • Schools will remain closed on Saturday and Sunday as a sanitisation process will be undertaken by authorities

Among the many relaxations, Karnataka has begun a few more including one-week quarantine compulsory for people entering from Kerala. Also, relaxation in night curfew has begun in districts barring Udupi, Hassan, Dakshina Kannada, and Kodagu among others.
