The vaccination process is gaining momentum in the state and according to the sources, Goa may achieve 100% vaccination by the month of August.
The teaching and non-teaching staff of the school need to first get vaccinated as they will be remaining in close contact with the students.
Although, the sources in the department have confirmed the resumption of physical classes but they have not mentioned as which standard and grades will be called for the physical classes, but there is a strong possibility of 11th and 12th may resume the physical classes soon.
It is more than a year that the Government has suspended the physical classes due to a rise in covid cases in the state. The second wave brought huge disaster in the state and now there is a possibility of the third wave which might come at the end of September.
As most of the students are below 18 and hence they may not get the jab of vaccine soon, and they will remain vulnerable to the infection.
