Local State universities to reopen in stages

Permission has been granted to re-open state universities in several stages on any day, while adhering to COVID-19 health guidelines.

Chairman of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Prof. Sampath Amaratunge said that under the first stage, only students who are fully vaccinated and have obtained the second dose two weeks prior to re-opening the university will be allowed to attend lectures. 

Universities have also been advised to resume classes for only 25% of students under the first stage.

However, the Chairman clarified that this regulation will not apply to the Medical and Applied Health Science faculties.
