Three schools shut in Budgam after detection of Covid-19 cases

Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district on Sunday ordered the closure of three schools for at least three days after Covid-19 cases were detected in these institutions.

The nodal officer for Covid-19 mitigation, in a letter to the three schools, advised the institutions to close the school premises for at least three days in view of detection of infections during random testing.

The official also advised the primary and secondary contacts of persons who tested positive at these schools to self-isolate till authorities conduct a Covid-19 test on them.

High and higher secondary schools in Kashmir opened on Monday after remaining closed for nearly a year, following the eruption of the Covid-19 pandemic in the early days of last year.

While middle schools will open on Monday for physical classes, primary classes will start operations from March 15.
