Nepal reopened schools on Sunday amid a weakening third wave of COVID infection, after a month of virtual classes fueled by the Omicron variant. The local district administration last week had permitted educational institutions and businesses such as hotels, restaurants and movie theatres to reopen from Sunday adhering to health and safety protocol. As per the decision of the COVID-19 Health Crisis Management Coordination Center (CCMCC), universities, schools, tuition centres, training and other educational activities, dance bar, dohori restaurants, lounge, pub, cinema hall, health club, gymnasium, swimming pool, Futsal, will be allowed opening till 10:00 pm. The CCMCC has however made the safety protocol mandatory. Similarly, the CCMCC had recommended the Ministry of Home Affairs, and Ministry of Education, Science and Technology for the arrangement of regular school classes for students above 12 years and on alternate days for those under 12 years. Schools and educational institutions of Nepal were closed last year in wake of rising infection due to coronavirus.
