The Manipur government has extended the closing of state schools until more orders due to the current COVID-19 situation, officials said on Tuesday. The state government had announced summer vacation in the schools from May 1 to May 31 to tackle the surge in coronavirus cases.

Commissioner Education (Schools) T Ranjit in an order said, there is still a need to close down all schools in public benefit after due thought of the predominant COVID-19 positive cases and mortalities. The order also said that "online classes will be resumed/ continued as usual with immediate effect".

All coaching classes and hostels will also remain closed, it said.
The state on Tuesday reported 798 new COVID-19 cases pushing the total to 51,549. Eighteen fresh fatalities were also registered to take the death toll to 825.

Schools in Manipur had reopened on January 27 after a gap of ten months for Classes 9-12.
In April, the state authority had announced to postpone the enrolment examination and higher secondary examination which were scheduled to be held from May 6 and May 5 respectively.
