Uttarakhand Government has decided to re-open Higher Educational Institutions from December 15 with only 50 percent student capacity in the class.
The government will also issue separate guidelines for the number of students allowed inside the class. The decision was taken in the cabinet meeting held late last evening. There are about 500 government, non-government and private colleges in the state, along with 32 government and non-government universities.
While conducting classes, COVID-19 guidelines should be strictly followed as per the guidelines issued by the State Government and the University Grants Commission.
Uttarakhand has reported 5,456 active COVID-19 cases, 72,880 recoveries, and 1,320 fatalities, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW).
