The government has extended the closure of all educational institutions, which remain closed since March, until February 28 amid ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
This information has been informed in a press release of the Ministry of Education on Sunday.
According to the notification, all the educational institutions of the country were declared closed till February 14. However, considering the Coronavirus situation, the holiday was extended till February 28.
All educational institutions have remained closed since March 17. The government extended the closure several times as the pandemic showed little sign of abating. The long closure led to the cancellation of examinations and left academic calendars in disarray.
