The SOPs were released by Deputy Chief Minister Dr Ashwathnarayan C N on his official Twitter account. “This SOP is a result of extensive consultations with all stakeholders and experts. I urge all Higher Education Institutions, students and parents to cooperate with us in this endeavour,” he wrote.


According to the SOPs, the staff and students are to undergo RT-PCR tests three days before the college re-opens. Colleges should, according to the SOPs, must map the closest primary health centres so that staff and students can get tested for free.

Class leaders will be responsible for checking on their fellow students in case any of them display symptoms of COVID-19.
