Educational institutions to reopen in phases starting Sept 15: Shafqat Mehmood

ISLAMABAD: Educational institutions will reopen in phases across the country starting September 15 with universities and professional colleges setting the course for schools to reopen later, said Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood.

The phase-wise reopening of the education centres, that were shut down following the COVID-19 breakout in March, will commence from next week and all the classes above nine will resume formal education with set Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in place.

He said since its opening, coronavirus tests will be conducted in the institutes every 15 days and the masks will be mandatory. “You can even wear masks made of fabric.”

Classes of secondary education ie six, seven and eight, will follow suit a week into the reopening: September 23. He said if all things operate swiftly for 15 days, then all the educational institutions will be reopened.
