Assam government has been getting ready to reopen most of its educational institutions in the state from September 1 but the ultimate decision would eventually depend on the Union Home Ministry, said Assam Education and Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. According to sources, he also said that all teachers and employees of the schools would compulsorily have to get themselves tested for Covid-19 between August 21 and 30.
“Those teachers and employees testing negative for coronavirus must attend their place of postings from September 1 onwards, otherwise they would be treated as ‘on leave without pay’,” he said. (Source :indiatvnews)
Sarma had also stated that the state government had already prepared the SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) for educational institutions and these would be circulated, once the Centre’s decision was received.
