ISLAMABAD - National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has allowed the reopening of educational institutions with the second phase under which schools for grade six to eight students will be reopened with the implementation of strict Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

According to media details, the NCOC today (Tuesday) has decided to reopen the middle schools after the first phase during which universities, colleges and school for ninth and tenth grade were allowed to reopen from September 15.

In the third phase, the Primary Schools will be allowed to reopen from September 30.
