LAHORE: The Punjab government has decided to close schools in four more districts across the province as coronavirus metrics continue to rise.

As per notification issued by the Punjab School Education Department, physical classes in Okara, Bhakar, Jhang, and Khanewal have been suspended.

Students from grades one to eight will be staying home. Their classes will resume after Eid. Those appearing for their matriculation and intermediate exams this year will, however, have to come to school twice a week.

Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas said that classes for grades nine to 12 will be held on Mondays and Thursdays with 50% attendance.

Universities have been instructed to conduct their classes online.
