  • Up to 50 per cent teaching and non-teaching staff will be allowed to report to schools, outside containment zones, at a time for online teaching/tele-counselling and related work from September 21.
  • Only essential services will be permitted in containment zones.

Activities that are not allowed :

  • Schools, colleges, education and coaching institutions across the country will remain closed for students until further guidelines.
  • Cinema halls, entertainment parks, theatres and swimming pools to remain closed.
