Schools in Mumbai for the students of Classes 1 to 7 slated to reopen from December 1 will now resume on December 15 due to the onslaught of Omicron variant of Covid-19, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.


Schools in Maharashtra were scheduled to run in shifts of three to four hours and students, Varsha Gaikwad on Monday said, were to be called in groups, however reopening of schools in Mumbai regions only has been postponed by two weeks.


"Attending offline classes will be optional and parents can opt for online classes", an official statement said.


In a warning on Monday, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said the new variant poses a "very high" global risk and could have "severe consequences" where there are surges.


Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in the statement added: “Schools for Classes 1-7 will now reopen from December 15, instead of December 1, in view of the emergence of Omicron variant of COVID in the world.”
