KATHMANDU, MARCH 25
Fearing the further spread of COVID-19 in the community, the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology has asked all the schools to avoid crowds and strictly abide by public health and security measures.
A meeting presided over by Education Minister Krishna Gopal Shrestha today decided to this end considering the adverse impacts on students' health and academic activities if the coronavirus were to spread due to crowding at the institutions.
As stated in the press release, the schools must follow the 'School Operation Framework, 2021' and not conduct any assemblies, functions, anniversary celebrations and other events and activities involving crowds and gatherings.
