As reported by Geo News, the 25th meeting of the Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC) was jointly held with the Healthy Ministry and the National Command Operations Centre (NCOC) during which the phased reopening of schools in the province as well as the schedule of examinations in 2021 was announced.

The new schedule is as follows:

  • January 11, 2021: Schools across Punjab will reopen only for teachers and staff members to prepare academic work and implement COVID-19 SOPs
