Assam LP (Lower Primary) schools to be shut in the districts having Covid cases more than 100.

Lower Primary (LP) schools in the Assam areas that have in excess of 100 COVID-19 cases will be closed, authorities said on Sunday.

The Deputy Commissioner of a district can order to close lower primary schools and pre-elementary schools if the COVID cases cross the 100-mark, they said.

The choice was taken considering the consistent increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in certain regions, they added.

A request to execute the choice was given on Saturday and it will stay in power up to May 8 or until additional bearings, they said.

Nonetheless, in the regions where the COVID cases are underneath the 100-mark, the lower primary schools (Classes 1 to 5) and pre-elementary schools will work according to the rules gave by the Education Department in December a year ago, authorities said.
