Announcement of Winter Vacations
NCOC issued a statement stating that the decision to push the holidays was made in light of the COVID-19 scenario, as it is critical to maximizing the coronavirus vaccination among kids that can be achieved while schools are open.
According to the Health Department’s data, many pupils are still unvaccinated, so the most important thing is to encourage parents to vaccinate their children against the coronavirus pandemic. Furthermore, the spread of a novel COVID-19 strain has raised worries. As a result, the winter vacations have been set for January, in light of the current scenario. The NCOC has also recommended people ensure that they are fully vaccinated against the disease.
