The West Bengal government on Friday asked all state-run and state-aided schools to reopen campuses from June 27 with strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols.
The government had earlier extended summer vacation by 11 days amid searing heat.
In a notification, the school education department asked authorities to take necessary steps to maintain hygiene on the campus, while ensuring that COVID-19 norms are followed.
Several private schools, mostly those affiliated to ICSE or CBSE, have, however, resumed physical classes from June 20.
