Relaxing Covid curbs, the Punjab Government has allowed reopening of schools for Classes 10 to 12 from July 26. The gathering cap has been eased to 150 persons indoors and 300 outdoors, subject to an upper limit of 50 per cent of the capacity of the venue.

The decisions were announced following a Covid review meeting chaired by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh. It was noted that the positivity rate had fallen to 0.3 per cent while the reproduction number (Rt) had declined to 0.75, which was lower than the national average.

Capt Amarinder said only those teachers and staff would be allowed to be physically present in schools who were fully vaccinated. “The physical presence of students will purely be on the consent of the parents. The option of virtual classes will continue,” he said.
