DU to reopen on Feb 17, Check Covid guidelines for students | India News

New Delhi: Days after Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) gave a go-ahead to universities in the national capital to operate physically after a Covid-induced halt, Delhi University on Wednesday announced that will resume in-person classes from February 17. 

The decision to reopen the campus for offline classes, which were shut in March 2020, came after weeks-long massive protests by the students. However, the classes will be conducted with certain mandatory Covid norms. 

Here are the Covid guidelines to be followed by the Delhi University students: 

  • All outstation students will have to undergo mandatory isolation for three days before they can enter their college. 
  • The order also said that the authorities shall encourage the teaching and non-teaching staff and the students to get vaccinated if not already done at the earliest. 
  • As per DDMA guidelines, thorough sanitisation and proper ventilation should be carried out in libraries and college premises 
  • There should be adequate availability of thermal scanners, hand sanitisers and soaps. 

As Covid-19 cases declined, the schools in Delhi, higher educational institutions and coaching centres were reopened on Monday (February 7) following DDMA’s order.
