After a long gap of almost a year, the schools in UT of Ladakh reopened for Class 6 onwards on March 30. They were shut due to COVID-19 pandemic. COVID norms have to be followed at schools which are reopening to combat spread of the virus. A school staff said, "We're following all the SOPs. We have reduced students' strength to 50% in each class. Students will have to come to school on alternative days."
