School closed after 9 students test COVID-19 positive
Authorities on Tuesday shut a secondary school in Budgam after nine students tested positive for COVID-19.
The students of a higher secondary school tested positive during a mass testing campaign of teachers and students, an official said. Authorities said that the school would remain closed for the next five days as a preventive measure. The number of active cases that had come down to less than a 1000 has again increased as more and more positive cases are being reported in J&K.
