Amid the lowering scale of COVID infection in Rajasthan, the state Education Minister on Thursday announced the reopening of schools from 2nd August, across all districts.

Detailed notification with SOPs for COVID control in schools will soon be released by the Home Department, officials stated. They also mentioned that the decision to reopen coaching institutes and universities would be finalised later.
