It is noteworthy that the state ordered the resumption of academic activities for students of Class 10, 11 and 12 from February 1, 2022. In addition to this, the Haryana state government had decided to allow vaccinated students of Class 10-12 to begin attending classes in offline mode from January 27, 2022. Haryana education department gave nod to the decision and issued relevant orders in this regard as well.
As per the guidelines issued for reopening of schools in Haryana state, only the students who have administered the first vaccine dose were allowed to attend classes in the physical mode. Additionally, schools need to ensure compliance to Covid-19 norms.
