UNLOCK 4: ‘Schools and colleges may not reopen anytime soon’

New Delhi, Aug 24: The government is likely to allow resumption of Metro train services in the ‘Unlock 4' phase beginning September 1, but schools and colleges may not reopen anytime
soon, Officials said on Monday.

The official said there will be
no reopening of schools and col-
leges immediately, but delibera-
tions are underway on whether
to allow reopening of higher
educational institutions such
as universities, IITs and IIMs. No
decision has been taken on the
matter yet, the official added.
There is almost no possibility of
allowing cinema halls to reopen
from September 1 as it will not
be commercially viable for film-makers or cinema hall owners to
operate following social distancing norm, another official said.

The state governments will
take a final call on additional
activities that should continue
to remain prohibited during the
‘Unlock 4', the official said. PTI
