Teachers and staff suffering from any illness or pregnant employees of education institutions must refrain from going to work

The Ministry of Education has decided to allow the administrative offices of education institutions in Bangladesh to reopen, on a limited scale, from Tuesday to carry out administrative functions as necessary.

The ministry issued a statement in this regard on Monday.

In order to prevent the transmission of Covid-19 infection, all education institutions will remain closed, but their administrative offices can be open for official activities on a limited scale.

Considering the situation, the Education Ministry has directed all educational institutions to open their administrative offices so that the authorities of the institutions can enrol students and conduct other clerical functions.

However, teachers and staff who are suffering from any illness or female employees who are expecting must refrain from going back to work, the statement reads.

In addition, everyone at the educational institutions has to wear masks at all times and strictly follow all health guidelines issued by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

The Islamic Foundation also issued a statement on Monday, saying all the Qawmi madrasas would be able to open their offices for administrative activities - i.e. conduct enrolment of the new batch of students - while maintaining proper social distancing and other health guidelines.

After 66 days of lockdown, Bangladesh resumed operations of all offices, business and transport on a limited scale on Sunday, even though the spread of Covid-19 in the country shows no sign of abating.
