“All schools and educational institutions will remain closed. We continue to support online teaching of curriculum during this period.
“However, students in transitional classes, who have mandatory Public exams ahead of them are permitted to resume at only day schools as soon as possible for revision classes and examination. All educational establishments are to follow established public health guidelines and protocol for re-opening the schools for these categories of students.
