The Nepali government is striving to implement best strategies including lockdown extension and local entry points closure to stave off coronavirus spread in the country.
In the same line, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology have ordered the schools, colleges and other educational institutions to restrict from announcing admissions until further notice.
The government has also directed the educational institutions not to impose any charges for online classes.
However, the Ministry has not taken any decision regarding the Secondary Education Examinations (SEE), and Grade 11 and Grade 12 Board Examinations.
“We have been minutely observing the situation and consulting the stakeholders in this regard,” said the Ministry.
Issuing the notice on May 4, 2020, the Ministry has instructed the educational institutions not to collect fees for one month except the residential charges.
So far, Nepal has reported 82 coronavirus infection cases and zero death cases. Even though the number is small, the government is on high alert due to the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases in recent days.
