Schools and colleges across the country have been closed since mid-March when the nationwide lockdown started to contain the spread of coronavirus pandemic. And as per Unlock-4 guidelines, the Central Government has permitted schools and colleges to re-open on voluntary basis by following some standard operating procedures so that the spread of COVID-19 can be minimised and controlled.
