Since March last year, all educational institutions have been shut due to the pandemic. Finally, there is a ray of hope as the government has decided to reopen schools in phases on a limited scale, prioritising SSC and HSC students. However, while students must get back to class, maintaining health guidelines to ensure safety is of utmost importance. Masks and physical distancing must be mandatory, as well as proper handwashing facilities and regularly sanitised toilets. As most people tend to disregard precautionary rules in public places, constant supervision is also a must.
