Get tested for virus, UT advises teachers

Chandigarh, September 21

As a precautionary measure, schoolteachers have been advised to get tested for Covid-19. After nearly six months, schools partially reopened in the city today. Under the Unlock 4.0 guidelines, the Centre had allowed schools to reopen on a voluntary basis for students of Class IX to XII after getting consent from their parents.

During a review meeting, UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore directed the UT Education Secretary to ensure that the guidelines of the Centre were followed when students come to the campus.

The Administrator advised the teachers to get themselves tested for Covid regularly. Badnore directed Principal Secretary (Health) Arun Gupta to ensure that adequate number of ambulances was available for patients in home isolation, who needed to be transported from home in case their condition deteriorated. Dr Jagat Ram, Director, PGI, stated that they had arranged 400 beds for the treatment of Covid patients. — TNS
