West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said schools and colleges would reopen from November 15, and directed the chief secretary to take necessary measures to facilitate the process.
Ms. Banerjee, after attending an administrative review meeting at Uttar Kanya in Siliguri, asked Chief Secretary H K Dwivedi to ensure proper cleaning and sanitization of educational institutions before they reopen.
Schools and colleges in the state have been closed since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March last year.
The Chief Minister, earlier on August, said educational institutions may reopen in West Bengal after Durga Puja vacations, with classes on alternate days to start with.
