An official on Tuesday said that the School Education Department is undecided regarding the reopening of schools in Jammu and Kashmir.

He said, “As of now, there is no decision regarding the reopening of schools.”

The official said, “It would not be appropriate to say that the schools will reopen at earliest or continue to close. However, for now, there is no decision in this regard.”

“The concerned committee will take a call in this regard. They will assess the ground situation of COVID-19 cases and will take a call accordingly,” the official said.

The official further said, “I think it won’t be feasible to reopen the schools by putting the lives of kids at risk.”
