NEW DELHI: The Delhi government today announced that the decision on school reopening in the national capital will be made in the next Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) meeting.

"Weekend curfew, odd-even for shops to go. Night curfew to continue. Schools' opening to be taken up in next DDMA meet," according to ANI.

The decision was taken in a DDMA meeting today that discussed plans to ease the curbs in view of the improved situation of COVID-19. Delhi education minister Manish Sisosida said that the Delhi schools were closed “when it was not safe for children but excessive caution is now harming our children”.

A delegation of parents led by Chandrakant Lahariya, an epidemiologist and public policy specialist met Manish Sisodia and submitted a memorandum signed by over 1,600 parents demanding that the schools be reopened on Wednesday.

Delhi schools were closed on December 28 after reopening for a brief period. The Delhi government initially ordered to shut schools in the national capital due to poor air quality and later due to the spike in Covid-19 and Omicron cases in India. However, schools, colleges and other educational institutions returned to online classes due to the upcoming board exams 2022 and semester exams.
