Islamabad primary, middle schools to start in-person classes from today
Students of grades 1-8 will return to schools in Islamabad from Monday (tomorrow) onwards after the government gave a go-ahead for the resumption of in-person classes. The schools are already conducting classes for grades 9-10.
The decision came after the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) gave the approval for in-person classes, after seeing a decline in the coronavirus cases of the federal capital.
The National Command and Operation Centre on Saturday said all educational institutes in districts with a low coronavirus positivity ratio could reopen from Monday, June 7.
The NCOC, in the statement, did not specify what it considers a low positivity ratio, but last month it had said educational institutes in districts where the ratio was less than 5% could reopen.
