Educational Institutions in West Bengal will Reopen from November 15: Mamata Banerjee
Since the start of the COVID-19 epidemic in March of last year, all schools and universities in the state have been closed. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced on Monday that the state’s schools, colleges and other educational institutions will reopen from November 15, more than 18 months after they were halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 16 of last year, all educational institutions were compelled to close due to a spike in coronavirus infections. However, because the caseload was so high, they remained closed. She also told the chief secretary to take the required steps to make the process go more smoothly. After attending an administrative review meeting in Siliguri’s Uttar Kanya, Banerjee directed Chief Secretary H K Dwivedi to ensure that educational institutions are properly cleaned and sanitised before they reopen.
