Guwahati’s Gurukul Grammar Senior Secondary School has become the next educational institute to turn into a COVID-19 hotspot after 144 individuals tested positive for the infection.
Initially eight individuals had tested positive but the school administration had continued offline classes for Classes 9 and 10. It was after the parents filed complaints with a team of health department that the testing procedures began within the premises after which 22 staff tested Covid-19 positive along with eight non-teaching staff.
The district administration then ordered suspension of offline classes and asked the school to move to online learning considering the sudden surge of Covid-19 cases in the city. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had earlier stated that those who are non-vaccinated will not be allowed to enter any public places.
The state government has already issued guidelines for people to wear masks and follow all Covid-19 protocols at a time when at least 47 Omicron cases have already been reported from Assam.
