The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Tuesday said that teachers who were going to educational institutes under the ‘in-campus in-person’ teaching policy will now conduct online classes from their homes due to the spike in COVID cases in the union territory.
An order of J&K Disaster Management Authority said “In view of the prevailing COVID situation, all schools, colleges, technical education and skill development institutes shall not require in person attendance of any member of the staff”.
“The teaching staff shall only conduct online classes from their homes”, the order said. The universities shall be permitted to seek in person attendance of minimal staff only for research and lab work, it said. However, the staff which is needed for official duties by the district disaster management authorities concerned shall not be exempted on account of this order.
