Thiruvananthapuram: The state’s colleges would be allowed to open on October 4, according to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, who spoke at a press conference on Tuesday. The chief minister stated that educational institutions offering graduate and postgraduate level courses, including those in the technical, polytechnic, and medical sectors, can reopen.
Final-year students, teachers, and other employees will be permitted to work in any higher education institutions. Those who attend the colleges, however, must receive at least one dose of the Covid vaccine. In the first phase, final-year students are permitted to visit colleges, according to the CM.
Residential training centres for students above the age of 18 have also been given authorization to open. These organisations are expected to operate in a bio-bubble model. They can admit kids and teachers who have had at least one vaccination dosage. They will not, however, be permitted to leave the campus, according to the chief minister.
