Amid a sudden spike in COVID-19 cases, the Haryana government on Friday ordered the closure of all schools in the state until November 30.
 
The move came days after over 150 students tested positive for coronavirus.The state’s Directorate School Education ordered the closure of schools in a letter issued to all district education officers, block education officers and other concerned officials.

In view of the increasing number of COVID-19 cases and keeping in mind the health of the students, it has been decided by the Haryana government that all government and private schools in the state will be closed till November 30, said the letter.

The schools will also remain closed for the teaching staff and all school campuses will be sanitised during the closure.

Over 150 school students from three Haryana districts — Rewari, Jind and Jhajjar — had recently tested positive for coronavirus infection after which these schools had been closed until further notice.

The students who were asymptomatic too had tested positive during a random sampling drive carried out by the health department for the schools.

Schools in Haryana had reopened earlier this month for classes 9 to 12 with the prior consent of parents.

The state has been witnessing a spike in Covid cases this month especially in districts falling in the National Capital Region including Faridabad and Gurgaon.
