Govt has taken no decision to keep schools shut till December. The Press Information Bureau (PIB) on Thursday rejected a media report saying that the Central Government has decided to not re-open schools until December. Taking to Twitter, PIB said that the news was not correct and the Central government has not taken any decision on date of school re-opening.

After the Centre clarified that it has not yet fixed any date for the reopening of schools, rumours started doing the rounds that the Centre will not open schools until December. Taking to Twitter, PIB fact check has claimed this to be fake news and again clarified that no date has been fixed for the reopening of the schools. Neither there has been any decision to reopen schools from September, nor has there been any decision to not open schools before December.

Universities and schools across the country have been closed since March 16 when the Centre announced a countrywide classroom shutdown as part of measures to contain the COVID-19 outbreak. A nationwide lockdown was announced on March 24, which came into effect the next day and threw economic activities out of gear. While the government has largely eased restrictions, schools and colleges continue to remain closed.

According to the Unlock 3.0 guidelines released by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), schools, colleges and other educational institutions will remain closed till August 31. However, online classes and distance learning will be encouraged.
