The announcement came after the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) on Saturday allowed reopening of all educational institutes in districts with a low positivity ratio of Covid-19 cases from June 7 (Monday).

However, it said, academic activities will remain suspended in districts where the coronavirus positivity rate is still high.

Educational institutions are required to implement the coronavirus SOPs to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

On May 31, matriculation and intermediate classes in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Balochistan, and Islamabad resumed after the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) allowed the provinces to reopen educational institutes in districts with less than 5% Covid-19 infection rate.
