The meeting agreed that schools for remaining classes will be reopened after Diwali. "All the government and private schools in Delhi for classes 9 to 12 were allowed to reopen on September 1 by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority. The meeting also allowed Ramleela, Dussehra and Durga Puja festivals with proper standard operating procedures (SOPs) like social distancing and wearing masks in place," reported PTI.

The officials of Delhi Police and district administration have been directed to ensure strict enforcement of Covid-appropriate behaviour, sources said. They were also directed to ensure that gatherings during the festive season strictly comply with the SOPs, including no standing crowds, separate entry and exit points, appropriate social distancing for seating, and no activities (fares, stalls, swings) that attract crowds, they added.
