By Thameenah Razeek
The Government has decided not to reopen schools, pre-schools, pirivenas, tuition classes and State universities, until further notice, due to the sudden rise in the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, Education Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris said.
Despite the Government’s keen interest in continuing the education, the Minister said the decision was taken to prioritise health and safety of the students due to the prevailing vulnerability. The Minister further stated notices will be given to the students at least three days before the reopening of these institutions.
