The schools in Kerala will reopen on November 1 itself, confirmed the government. Minister for education V Sivankutty and health minister Veena George informed that a bio-bubble system will be established to protect the students from COVID-19. The ministers were addressing the media after attending a joint meeting of both departments ahead of the school reopening.
A detailed report will be prepared regarding the guidelines for school reopening. The guidelines will be made ready after detailed scrutiny of each aspect. Principal secretaries of the health and education department will prepare the report. As part of this, the departments will hold talks with teachers’ associations, parents and political parties.
Schools will be converted as a bio-bubble zone to ensure the safety of the children. Efforts are on to take the students to schools without bothering about their safety amid the pandemic. As the parents are concerned about the safety of the children, arrangements will be made to address the same.
More discussions will be held in the coming days, informed the ministers.
