Although the ongoing global pandemic emerged in 2019, it has affected countries all over the world in 2020. It continues to affect even at this very moment. Businesses have changed their model, economies have been altered and destroyed, and similarly, the education sector has also undergone changes. Even schools have been closed and for all the right reasons.
It is due to the transmission abilities of COVID-19 that lockdown and quarantine have been enforced all across the globe. While children have shown to be less infectious but that can also be a hoax, as perhaps they can develop mild symptoms and not show them at all. Due to this very reason, schools worldwide had shut down, just like other institutions and offices, and resorted to giving online classes.
But now that the coronavirus is gradually leaving, even schools are preparing to open in many parts of the world. However, there are still a few precautions that need to be considered, as mentioned in the following infographic.
