Govt to decide reopening of schools in B’luru on Jan 29

Bengaluru: The State Government will decide on the reopening of schools in Bengaluru on January 29, informed Education Minister B. C. Nagesh.

Speaking to mediapersons he said that with the exception of Bengaluru, schools will continue to run throughout the State.

“We are considering one school as a unit. In other parts of the State, Assistant commissioners, District Health officials, and Tahsildars will make a decision on school closures. If there are fewer than three Covid cases reported, the school will be closed for three days and if there are more, the school will be closed for seven days. As the positivity rate in Bengaluru is higher, the decision on school reopening will be taken on January 29,” he explained.

In the State, however, the positive rate among children aged 6 to 15 years is less, he said.

“Among the 5,33,104 students in the age group of 6 to 15 years tested for Covid-19, the positivity rate is 5.94 per cent. Six districts have a positivity rate of 9 per cent or more, while 13 districts have a rate of less than 5 per cent.  Bengaluru Urban has a positivity rate of 14.12 per cent, while Bengaluru Rural has an 8.84 per cent positivity rate,” he said.
