Colleges and schools to reopen in West Bengal from 15 November

State Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced that schools and colleges would reopen in West Bengal from 15 November. This comes as West Bengal continues to witness a rise in the number of cases of Covid.

CM Mamta Banerjee has directed the chief secretary to take necessary measures to facilitate the process.

After addressing an administrative review meeting at Uttar Kanya in Siliguri, the Bengal chief minister asked the HK Dwivedi Chief Secretary to ensure proper cleaning and sanitization of educational institutions before reopening.

College and schools in the state have been closed since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020.

CM Mamta Banerjee has urged people to follow the safety protocols rigorously to curb the spread of viral infection.

The CM of Bengal has urged everyone to wear the facemasks properly, covering the nose, to avert being infected with covid.

CM Banerjee said at a meeting.

"Please wear mask properly. The number of Covid cases registered a hike after Durga Puja. Hence, you must follow Covid safety precautions, do not keep the mask hanging from your chin,"

Mamta Banerjee has urged everyone to follow the coronavirus safety protocols during the upcoming Kali Puja, Diwali, Chhat Puja, and Jagaddhatri Puja festivities.

The Trinamool Congress chief has also warned people about a rise in malaria cases, especially in north Bengal.
