Govt extends closure of educational institutions till July 31

The government has again extended the ongoing closure of all the educational institutions of Bangladesh until July 31 as the coronavirus situation keeps worsening in the country.

The decision has been taken considering the overall Covid-19 situation, imposition of lockdown and safety of teachers, students and staff, Mohammad Abul Khayer, public relations officer of the Education Ministry, said on Tuesday.

On May 26, the government had decided to reopen the educational institutions, particularly primary, secondary and higher secondary ones, in the country on June 13 depending on the Covid situation. But the situation keeps worsening in the country, particularly in bordering districts.

The decision has been taken as per the directives of the National Technical Advisory Committee formed to fight Covid-19 in the country and it will remain applicable for Ebtedayee and Qawmi madrasas, too.

On March 16 last year, the government closed all the educational institutions to prevent the spread of coronavirus. No classes have been held since then.

Then the closure was extended several times, most recently until June 30, 2021.
