Corridors rang out with the chatter of students meeting up with their friends and teachers after long, anxious months on January 1, 2021, as schools in Kerala, Karnataka and Assam reopened with strict COVID-19 regulations, including masks, thermal screening, and social distancing. Earlier schools in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Jharkhand and Sikkim have already been partially opened. Schools, colleges and higher educational institutions have been closed since March due to Corona epidemic. Students were being taught online. In the unlock process, the Ministry of Home Affairs had given permission to open the school from September 2020.
