Health minister Veena George said that everyone should strictly follow the pandemic protocols especially since the colleges have been reopened in the state. As the Delta variant is still rampant, people should either follow double masking or wear high quality N 95 masks. Do not lower the mask while speaking.
The doors and windows of the classrooms should be kept open. Meanwhile, the students should not exchange or share pens, pencils, books and other items. They should not share drinking water or food either. Students, teachers and other staff who show symptoms like fever, cough, breathing difficulties and cold or have been in contact with Covid patients shouldn’t go to the college.
Students have been advised not to sit together while eating lunch. They should not talk while eating. It is better to use a fresh and clean mask after lunch. They should wash the mask and the clothes using soap as soon as they reach home. Moreover, they should interact with others only after taking a bath.

Hand washes and sanitizers would be arranged everywhere. There would be special teams in the campus to oversee the arrangements.
