Earlier, the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) on 22nd May, had directed provinces not to open educational institutions in the districts with high coronavirus rates.

According to the details, NCOC had sent a letter to the provinces, in which it said that schools should not reopen on May 24th where the COVID-19 positivity ratio is high.

They must instead remain closed till June 6.

“The districts where the infection rate is less — below 5% — can reopen educational institutions (on May 24),” NCOC said in a notification sent to the provinces.

A decision on whether or not educational institutes can reopen on June 7 will be taken on June 3, the letter added.
